New Orleans prototype?
Has anyone modeled the New Orleans area yet? I am getting into the hobby (no pun intended) and now live in the New Orleans area. I have traveled around a bit looking at what I would like to model in a modern era railroad.
I like yard work and am very interested in operations now. When I was young, and thinking about putting up a railroad while in the Air Force, I was thinking small and something with long runs and no real operations. Now, I think more about schedules and getting goods to businesses or people to Chicago, New York or Los Angeles.
I also like the idea of putting in the trolley system too, especially in the down town area where the Amtrak station is located. I would get to put in the Super Dome as well.
Too much? I don't want to create something where I will lose interest or not have enough room to do it justice, but the idea intrigues me.
I was hoping to learn from others on what to model and what to leave out in the area.
