Train Derailment in the Bronx

Deadly Metro North train derailment in NYC

The following are Google Earth pictures of the New York Metropolitan Area with the railroads box checked (under transportation which is under more) to emphasize the location of the tracks and, perforce, obscure their appearance.  The interested viewer can find the same pictures with the box unchecked as in the last picture (Sunnyside Yards) before the Grand Central Station track plans from the Age of Glory.

Grand Central Station Track Plans

I got rail joiners, but need Atlas code 55 flex track.

Here is my first Winrail X2 track plan consisting of the four free-mo N modules plus end pieces, one loop and one wye.

Here is a show version of the ship channel compex of Free-Mo N modules that can actually be built.

In particular, despite the narrow aisles between the side modules, these industrial sidings can begin to be populated with roads, vehicles, structures, industrial equipment such as distilation columns, reactors, storage tanks, pipe racks, and miscellaneous junk.

This is more like a show layout with additional modules by others.

I know I should have less track and more industry on the side modules; but, I like the track drawn by Winrail so much that I hate to delete it.

This is close to my final track plan for this fastasy stand-alone ship channel complex incorporating Free-Mo N.

The next drawing features an even larger ship display table just to see if i can do it.  I would like to extend the waterfront to the entire upper edge of the layout.

Slightly more reasonable

This track plan incorporating the Free-moN modules really belongs in the fantasy model railroading category:

Eight yards up close:
