Re: Construction of the LK&O Railroad

I liked the inclined curve at 6:20. I wouldn't be able to wait long enough for the whole thing to be done, I'd be running "locals" on what little parts I could with it being under construction.

Re: Rubber City Rails videos/DVDs

I have all four volumes and recommend all of them. There is a cab ride on the ABB over what has been taken out to East Akron. Volumes 2 & 3 has W&LE over the AC&Y and Volume 1 shows MoW workers from the 1950s. Volume 3 has an ABb cab ride also but over the CR(El) to Rittman. I recommend all of them....

ABB Interchange

I plan to start modeling the A&BB in Barberton from the late 1979s to early 198Os. Does anyone have track diagrams or pictures of the interchanges with the trackage at the north end of the yard.
Thanks for the help.
