Northern Pontiac Railway
This layout depicts a branch line operation serving several primary
industries: mining, lumbering and quarrying.
An urban/industrial area now in development is the focus of the
branch. The branchline is
operational, hardshell scenery depicting the rugged Pontiac countryside is
in place and structures for many of the industries and supporting
infrastructure have appeared.
The layout started out as a simple but solid trackplan on a 4 x 8 foot
table, as time went on and both Tomís skills and interest grew, so did
the layout, expanding from its solid foundation in several stages.
Along the way operation, scenery, structures and rolling stock have
all developed to where they stand now.
This is a good example of a layout which has evolved logically and
progressively as the interest and abilities of the owner have expanded
