Introduction to Vine and Branches Railroad

Vine and Branches is a small 9x6 HO scale model railroad named after a nearby road and a branch of the railroad that services the logging industry, pun intended, the name also references John chapter 15

Back in high school I built up a nice outside L shaped layout that is still at my parents house today. When I moved out we created a nice module system that I could take with me but it has been put on the back burner until a little of train engines in this house have motivated me to put some more work into it.

At this point you will be able to go around the layout twice before covering the same track twice. There will be an upper and lower section.
The roster theme will be Great Northern.
