Layout Tour 2

Layout Tour 2 Ed Fischer’s HO Piedmont and Tidewater Railroad represents a short line that runs up the Northern Neck from Reedsville to Fredericksburg, which was planned but never actually built--pure freelance.  It also includes a rebuilt Virginia Central Railway from Fredericksburg to Orange---proto-freelance.  No stacks, no racks, no locals ducking into holes to let the varnish by; it is a switching layout with lots of places to spot railcars but not a lot of extras like scenery.
