I'm in the process of modeling the Oyster Bay branch in O scale. I have the Mineola station area, the industrial area in Mineola known as "the hole", Locust Valley, and of course Oyster Bay. The track is down and ballasted, but I don't have much in the way of scenery yet. Attached is a copy of my track plan, and a picture of the OB yard. There is staging that is West of Mineola, and under the yard.
I have been slowly re-entering the hobby after the usual high school/college/early career hiatus Besides dusting off and repairing all of my old equipment, I just completed my first custom paint job. This is an old Triang-Hornby US-market RDC painted to resemble LIRR 3121.
I snagged two Atlas HO Scale LIRR Alco C420s from Trainland in Lynbrook, NY, #s 226 and 229. Next will be a pair of the Athearn Genesis LIRR MP-15ac's......and I need three LIRR cabooses, two in the yellow with blue roof and an orange one with the LONG ISLAND in large blue letters.
