Hi everyone. I have not posted here for a long time I hope this time I can hang around a bit longer. I want to find a Forum that is about Railway modelling and nothing else looking at the threads this one seems to be the the place. My Railroad is 1/48 USA I have posted threads here before. There have been lots of changes over the last four years including a name change. The railroad is now called the "Yulan Valley Railroad (YVR). The YVR is actually a Shortline run with leased Erie lackawanna locomotives and is complete with passenger service mainly for Steel Mill workers the main Railroad action centres around the Steel Mill called Republic Steel all this exists only in the owners mind I have not based the layout on anywhere in particular except to say it is in North of America somewhere near Youngstown Ohio. Even though I have used the name "Republic Steel" of which the real Republic Steel had huge steel mills in America I have only used the name because to me it just sounds American! I hope to post photos of my progress starting from this thread some of you would have seen threads of the Steel mill on other forums they have stopped I have never liked posting the same photos on other forums so any photos posted here in the future will only be for Western Thunder. Hopefully I can provide some entertainment for the members in the future. I still travel to the UK most years and did visit this year around June to early for Telford. Next message I hope to have some photos. Regards Neville.
