Operations at MARPM19

MARPM registrants are invited to participate in operating sessions on two outstanding layouts—one on Thursday afternoon and one on Sunday morning.  If the number of sign-ups shows we need more operator spaces, we have a second layout for Sunday. Sign up by sending an e-mail to Mat Thompson at ocrr@comcast.net and stating your choice or choices.

John King's Baltimore & Ohio, Shenandoah Valley Branch

SORRY THIS SESSION IS FULL Thursday September 19 2:00-5:00 PM Boyds, MD

This railroad depicts the B&O’s Shenandoah Valley branch, circa 1949 running from Brunswick, Md. south through West Virginia terminating in Strasburg, Va at the Southern interchange. While there is plenty of action during a session, the layout is spread out through a large basement so the sensation of running on a quiet branch line is evident. John uses both steam and diesels in his operations. HO scale, wireless throttles, TT&TO. Crew of 10.

Jeff Mutter's Erie Lackawanna Scranton Division

Sunday September 22 10:00 AM-1:00 PM Severna Park, MD

This layout is based on the EL lines in central Pennsylvania (1975) with modeled mainline locations from East Stroudsburg west to Scranton where there is a connection to Taylor Yard. There is also a branch line extending from Taylor to Rupert. Train movements on the mainline are per dispatcher controlled signaling while the branch is TT&TO territory. HO, double deck walk around plan, NCE Radio throttles, with Proto throttles assigned to most trains and yards. Crew of 12.
