Marty McGuirk has updated the web site for his Southern New England Railway. I first met Marty in 1998 at a MER Convention. I’ve always admired his modeling, so I’ll be following his progress. Of course, since I’m a closet Central Vermont fan, the subject of his modeling doesn’t hurt. 🙂
One of his recent updates explains how he’s constructing a scene on the SNE based on a prototype photograph. His report particularly interests me because I enjoy learning how owners of other prototype-based freelanced railroads develop signature scenes which represent the locale they’re modeling. When I return my focus to building scenery on the CSX Shenandoah Division, I plan to include several such scenes based on favorite spots along the Clinchfield/CSX Blue Ridge Division.
