Mike Ritschdorff's N & W Pocahontas Division - HO Scale
This large railroad operates in West Virginia and along the Ohio River. The theme is coal, coal, and more coal. The layout has two operating coal loaders with LIVE loads and! A signaled mainline, double-headed sound equipped 2-6-6-2's, and pushers get trains out of the holler and up and over the hill. Plenty of industrial switching abounds along with flat yard switching. Steam, diesel, electric and turbine power pull mountains of coal. The layout was a feature in HGTV's "Incredible Basements" show in 2003, and Kalmbach's The Model Railroader's Guide to Coal Railroading. LENZ DCC. Car Card car routing.
