Rob C's Album: Horseshoe & Cottonwood R.R.

Progress shots on the HOn3 Horseshoe and Cottonwood layout. This multi-deck layout models part of the Carson and Colorado and the fictional H&C line that is modeled after the Bodie & Benton, a wild ride through the Sierra Nevada mountains to boom towns circa 1911.

I'm probably using this American Model Builders structure as my Owenyo depot for the H&C. The Carson & Colorado "depot" would be on the near side of the tracks and just consist of a box car on a platform in my model year of 1911. There is a clear delineation between Carson & Colorado trackage on the near side of the photo and H&C tracks and the interchange crossover. The dual gauge H&C shares tracks with the SP from Owenyo down to Lone Pine, CA.
