My layout is based loosely on the Burlington Northern in the midwest (southeast Nebraska to be specific) as well as the southwestern desert. I know the two don’t have much to do with each other, but both places are areas that I have enjoyed living in. I have a general idea of what I am going to do to represent the desert area of the layout. The over/under bridge as well as the high line with be mountainous with a short tunnel. I was able to acquire a cement industry from a friend so that will work good for a spur in this area. Along with that came a couple ATSF buildings which should fit in perfect.
In addition to the buildings, i was able to snag a few loads, so now all of the cars are hauling freight. Here is a short video showing some of them, including lumber loads on the center beams.
