Layout Details

This is a Digitrax DCC, and signaled layout with an automated dispatcher’s panel using JMR Panelpro. This N-Scale layout is a model of specific spots along the Columbia River Gorge depicting the rails on both sides of the river, OR and WA. We have tried to capture the basalt rock geology of the river and industrial areas along the way from eastern Portland to The Dalles and beyond. It is a point to point operation from two yards on either end servicing lumber, grain, fruit, rock crushing, and typical PNW industries. This layout is in the basement of The Hobbysmith Train shop.
