Satelite Photos of the UPRR Geneva Sub.

Okay, they are not really satellite photos, but they remind me of them.  They are actually multiple photographs taken with the camera up against the ceiling.  I then "pasted" them together with Microsoft Word.  Finally, I used Word to generate a pdf file of the photos.  The photos provide an excellent way to see the details of the track plan.  The photos are from the Proviso area of the layout.  I'm am including a track plan of the entire layout so that you can see where the photos fit into the layout.  You may notice that the track plan is incorrect in a number of areas.

Meet at Proviso

Its been quite a while since my last post.  This has been due mainly to working on new flooring for the upstairs of our house.  We should be done with that by Thanksgiving and then its back to the railroad.  In the meantime here's a short video to keep you interested (and clicking on ads!)
