Wilmington and Northern Branch

Welcome to the Wilmington and Northern Branch

Take a ride on the Reading!

Read about the History of the both the W&N full size and the HO scale version.

The W&N Branch layout was originally built in the 1948-1952 era.  In 2006 I decided to backdate it to the 1900-1905 era. 
Rebuilding in earnest begain in the summer of 2008.  Then in 2013 we decided to move to a new house (a new basement with a new house on it).  The layout was dismantled in 2014 and re-construction began in 2015.

Both the layout and website are under construction, so revisions are possible at any moment!
