I have needed a track plan for the Geneva Sub II since the layout was moved from Rochelle to Atlanta. Here's a start! The track plan shows how the layout from Rochelle was cut up and re-positioned in out home in ATL. I still need someone to fill in the rest of the trackage that has been added, including the staging yard. I can send aerial photos of the tracks to assist. Let me know if you are interested.
After getting the pavement extended for Global 3, work has begun on constructing the check-in and check-out structures. While visiting family in Chicago suburbs, I was able to get away for a morning to head over to Rochelle and click some pictures of the prototype. I also did some research via truckers YouTube videos on entering and existing intermodal yards. Satellite photos were also very helpful. Here are a few of the pictures of Global 3 from the ground and from space.
It took a lot of trigonometry and the use of a hip roof calculator, but I was able to get the hip roof calculated and cut out. I first used card stock to test the fit before cutting out the plastic for the final assembly. I used some left over pieces from a micro engineering engine house kit for the standing seam roof. The prototype is five lanes wide, but I reduced the size for a four lane unit.
Last Sunday, June 30, 2019, the Geneva Sub began a weekly video series on continuing construction and operations on the UPRR Geneva Subdivision. Below is a link to last Sunday's post. This Sunday's video will premiere 10:30 am EST.
