Marquette Southern
This is an HO Scale layout designed to fit into the corner of a 12' x 10' room. It was designed as a bi-level mountainous coal-hauling line featuring steep grades and a detailed yard/engine facility. It was originally created for a visitor on my old web site, through exchanging e-mail discussion.  However, this would make a fantastic N Scale layout, perhaps with an Upper Peninsula theme appropriate for the Lake Superior & Ishpeming or the Escanaba & Lake Superior.  I could easily see ore jennies and wood-pulp cars moving from the top level down to the port cities of Marquette or Escanaba.  Someone should give this a try!
