North American 'HO'
RAILROAD CROSSING is built to HO scale (3.5mm to 1foot), it is set somewhere in North America on the
CSX Transportation network, in the present day. It is a switching puzzle type layout using a simple card
system to make the operating quiet demanding. The size and shape has been set by my car roof box.
Trackwork and point motors are PECO, Buildings are a collection of prebuilts by Woodland Scenics,
Walthers and Bachmann, grass has been done using the static method, with Green Scene products and
applicator. A Digitrax DCC system is used, locomotives are either sound equipped or make use of the sound
unit located in one of the buildings. Only five freight cars fit on the layout, from various manufactures, all
fitted with metal wheels, Kadee couplings and weighted to MNRA guidance. A Rix Produces uncoupling
tool is used. Signs have been reproduced from the real ones found on the internet.
