Other Local (or somewhat) Model Railroads
One of the, I feel, most overlooked bonus of the model railroading hobby is the social aspect - the ability to connect with other model railroaders. I know there are many modelers out there that revel in their status as a 'lone-wolf', but it is my opinion that they are missing out on a large portion, and hence increased enjoyment, of the hobby.
In the general central Virginia area (what I define as East of Interstate 81, Fredericksburg south, North of NC, and West of the Tidewater metroplex), there are a good number of layouts, most of which do operations.
- Easton & Potomac - HO Scale in the 1920's in Virginia
- Virginia Blue Ridge and Southern - HO Scale modeling the Southern in Virginia
- Western Maryland Moseley Division - HO Scale Coal Hauler based on the Western Maryland. Did we mention the coal?
- Sandy Creek and Southern - HO Scale in the 1970's
- A&N - On30 modeling the Eastern Shore carfloat operation
- Virginia Southern - HO scale
- Mohawk and Hudson - HO scale
