We used to be WORMs, now we are WORBS. West Of Regal Bay Street

I assume you already exhausted a Google search for same? That's the same way I would find links to show you.

Failing that, you could start with RAILROAD.NET:

I updated one of the 30th St yard photos with a view of some possible sweeper equipment and an inquiry about that equipment.

Speaking of The High Line, I often check out what is going on across ‘The Pond’ in terms of model railroading and recently came across the Belgian club ‘Branch Lines and Backwoods’ that is doing a cool rendition of The High Line. Here is a link to the photos of a work in progress.
