This is the model railroad layout I've wanted to model since I was a kid. It's a small On30 gauge layout in a 11X10' room, showing a fictional branch line of the real-life East Tennessee & Western North Carolina RR. It runs up the valley where my parents grew up in, taking place in 1943, when Dad and Mom would have been 7 and 6, respectively.
All the rolling stock is modified to some degree, and almost all the structures are scratch built. I have four ten-wheelers, representing ET&WNC locomotives 9, 11, 12 and 14 (14 was on the White Pass & Yukon by this time, so I'm departing into a 'parallel universe' concept there).

There is a military presence on the layout, but not a huge one:

Thanks!
I also took a couple of simple videos with my cell. I have a really good camera and plan on putting together something much more polished as soon as the background scenery is better looking:
