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.

Just finished my engine house (the Keeler engine house kit) but using it in Laws instead as I don't model as far down as Keeler. There wasn't much in Laws in 1911 but we'll assume it grew a little bit more thanks to traffic generated by the H&C. I've staked out the plot of land for the Depot which is still under construction. The main curves off to the right towards Benton and Carson City.
