Mid-Central Region Convention

Engineering the Right of Way:
Incorporating prototypical engineering practices into your model railroad can significantly increase the realism of your layout. Neal will share with you how he has done so on his railroad. The clinic will start with overall design considerations and will then turn to a discussion of topics such as track geometry, earthwork including cuts and fills, slopes, drainage considerations, and the correct use of bridges and tunnels. Finally, he will share his techniques for right of way modeling which will allow you to accurately portray actual civil engineering practices on your railroad’s right of way.
