Notes:

In 2009 we began to build advanced features into our 2nd layout, the Keystone Division of the Reading  & Chesapeake Railroad. We expect to surpass our earlier Gettysburg efforts in storyline, automation and scenicing.

Railroad Work Halted 2012 to June 2014!

Since July 2014 we used 3D Printing to create Signal dress-up shrouds for our many Digitrax Signals. Some Model Railroaders asked about acquiring these signal shrouds so we added a store on Shapeways.com. If you are interested., go to the store called 'ModelRailroader1' to order shrouds.

We also refined lots of trackwork, restored some models and landscaping, debugged some hardware, and began video creation projects. By April 2015 we developed a robot loco script generator in MRRM that will run under JMRI control. See the videos page for more information on the progress of these additions.
