"Waldman Service Lane" FAQ
Why model CSX equipment?
I work for CSX Intermodal, so when it came time to make a decision for a road to model off of, it was the logical choice...plus I like the color scheme. Aristo-Craft and USA Trains are the main ones making CSX stuff in G scale as far as I know.
"G" scale or anything that looks close to it...so many different scales for large scale...
Outdoor area size?
65'x 95' (depends on how much property my wife will let me use)
Length of mainline at completion?
At least 200' (depends on how much money my wife will let me use) and will be track powered.
Operational or just one of those loops?
I want to operate, but i'm sure I will have those days when I want to sit and listen to the 'clickety-clack' sound and relax...so it will probably be a dogbone with pass sidings and industrial spurs...the jury is still out of that one.
From the Trainmaster's desk December 3, 2000
It is amazing, but after looking all over, I could not find a large scale club here in the Lowcountry...you would think that with the good mild climate and decent weather that there would be one or two...but no! If you are a large-scaler and live in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, contact me...I can use all the advice I can get.
As you can tell by the graphic above, CSX is the road...however, don't be surprised to see a UP or Southern engine or box in my garden...after all, they do interchange with 'em...also look out for some pre-CSX stuff, like SCL and more 'Family Lines' items...speaking of which, I cannot find any SCL, L&N, or Family Lines schemes - so I gotta 'roll my own'.
I am planning to include industries common to South Carolina, so there will be some smaller industries, such as timber, bulkloading, and an intermodal yard.
Thank you for visiting - come back soon! Hopefully I will be up and building by February or March 2001...and should have some construction pictures and 'as I go' info up on this site!
