Here Are Some Shots from my LNE Layout. Here is Benders Junction

Yes those are the reading camelback engines. Even though the LNE did not have 4-4-0's in their modern lineup, this was the best representation of the road's power.

The over 2% grade required lots of power and lot of patience. You could run faster than the train.

Here are FA1's taking coal empties west past the abandoned saylorsburg branch

Nice stuff LNEpenargyl. I'm a west end LNE fan from the 1950's and your route looks very interesting. Isnt it great that Adam Gase [CincySouthernRwy] has given us this LNE rolling stock?

Excellent stuff, well done.

I guess Benders Junction is where guys who are on 'the other train' get off...

Best wishes,

Nice layout! I started one based on Jim Hertzog's revised trackplan published in Model Railroad Planning. It was not one he was going to build as he was switching to modeling the Reading at Locust Summit.
