  1. Your layout is very well designed. I am surprised you managed to fit all that in the back of a van/people carrier like that.

    The low level track shorts are great too. I;m looking forward to more construction posts in the new year.

    Merry Christmas

  2. Hey Tim! I was reading some books on the Google Book image about trackwork and I ran across something I thought you might find interesting. It has a book entitled “Notes on track: construction and maintenance” By Walter Mason Camp, with full (scanned) PDF available for download. On page 467 is a diagram of the “Harlem Transfer Company”.

    Interesting is some of the notes, which may also apply to your Bronx Terminal as the designs are similar. Curves widened a half inch, outer rail raised 2 inches, and they talk about special coupling bars.
