Paul says that he does not modelling a specific period or place and will run generally modern, diesel engines. The layout features oil refinery, commercial area, residential area, hydro dam, storage yards, engine yard, saw mill, furniture factory, warehouse, farm, intermodal yard, many road vehicles and even a container ship. Roads will eventually have wires embedded for free running vehicles to run. The control and operations will be carried out by using Train Controller Gold and Digitrax for DCC/automation.

This is a many year project :) and I am sure will see modifications along the way.” says Paul.
