This may be a self-serving request but here goes anyway.

It would be nice to see an article featuring Brittain Yard in detail. Track plan, track assignments, typical operations, oddities, service area, etc. As a modeler it would be of great help.

Alan,
A comprehensive multi-part feature covering AC&Y's Brittain yard has been planned for some time. There is sufficient content including blueprint drawings and terrific photos. I would expect to see Brittain Yard - Part I sometime in 2013. Bob

I guess I had overlooked this post, but I too am awaiting your article Bob. I am laying track to other parts of my layout but leaving Brittain Yard (I am doing engine servicing area but not "yard") until I better understand function/operation.

Also, the other end...Delphos. While the Model Railroader article was helpful, it was from the perspective of the NKP/PRR. An AC&Y operations/interchange article would be greatly appreciated.

BTW, thank you Bob for all your valuable work.

Sorry to drag up an old post, but can anyone remember the article? What was it about? More importantly, does anyone remember which issue?

Looks Like I better get going on an article on Delphos. Maybe how to incorporate operations into a model railroad? Delphos operations on the AC&Y were pretty simple.

Yep, you got it! Get writing! Lol
Couldn't ask for more. I'm still in the early stages of research, so absolutely anything is valuable.
Thanks WestEnd!

The magazine referred to was Model Railroad Planning 2009. Hope that helps somewhat.
