Catching Up with the Old Line Corridor After a Tough Summer

Apologies again for the tardy and sparse posts. It has been a summer of business and family health surprises. Nonetheless, more progress to show on the Old Line Corridor. All track is down, ready for weathering and ballast. One of those health surprises happened to me and has caused me an extended convalescence, time that I used to engage in some scenic conceptualizing.

The main line and staging tracks are in, with the industrial spur track laying underway. The DC power pack is out for testing purposes.

A crude sketch of the overall Old Line Corridor concept, overlayed on a photo of the layout. From this side, the scenic ridge will represent the gently rolling terrain of the rural/suburban stretches of the Washington-Baltimore segment of the Pennsy mainline/Northeast Corridor. The other side of the scenic ridge will be more vertical urban scenery, characteristic of the Baltimore and Washington city stretches of this line.
