Dutchess & Hudson Valley Railroad

   Welcome to my layout! This layout is a representation of a fictitious version of The Delaware &Hudson Railroad. If The D&H railroad had expanded track age rights, it would have followed the Taconic mountain regions into Northeast New York, Northwest Massachusetts and Connecticut. I chose this railroad to model since it was the only rail system in the Northeast not to be monopolized by the formation of the Conrail System. It also had numerous characteristics that I appealed to me, for instance loads of elevation changes, mountains, rivers, water front scenes and plenty of bridges.

     I have been an avid modeler all my life, but it was not until I discovered the hobby of model railroading that my interest in modeling has excelled. I have enjoyed learning and improving my modeling skills over the years. As with anything in life the more you do something the better you become at it! While I love all aspects of this hobby my two main passions are scenery construction and craftsman structure building. I feel that building a realistic scene on a layout is a form of “art” I enjoy creating and sharing my hobby with others. I have met some great people and developed some long lasting friendships do to this hobby.
