CSX

This is a large (2000 sq ft) multi-deck model railroad. Modeling the CSX double track mainline from Chicago to Baltimore/Selkirk, it features a four-track helix and has two staging yards (10+ tracks) about 20" off the floor. The helix connects these with the main level (about 40" off the floor) and the upper level (about 60" off the floor).

Operations are planned, as there are about 40 industries located off the mains. The layout has 4 major classification yards, plus several other staging yards. There is no scenery, but many buildings are partially assembled.
