Howdy folks,

as this layout features some special feature, I decided to present you the final layout today. Once you know the final details, this movie might become somewhat unspectacular. Enjoy!!

The Yellow Pine Lumber Co. was founded in 1894 at Hoffman in North Carolina. The railroad operated two lines. The first one down into the south, later a new line to the north east was build. The original ROW is still visible in form of roads today. This railroad operated on the rare gauge of 30″ and owned one of only two 30″-gauge Shays in the Sandhills region. Therefore, this was a perfect match for my little Toma Shay.

As usual, my micro layout is dedicated to the prototype, but no accurate model of any prototype situation.

Cheers, Gerd
