"Green Hills RR" (1:48 - amerikanisches Vorbild)

The free lanced GHRR is a small branchline in the Eastern US. Its main purpose is to transport coal from the fields around the "Green Hills" to "East Port" where most of the coal is loaded onto ships.


Track plan
Below you see the schematics of the whole GH RR - the track is completely laid and about half of the layout is finalized, the other half still lacks ballast, detailling and structures. ( "*" marks the actual physical location of the fiddleyard.)
