Misty Ridge is my primary New England model railroad, running from Troy, NY to Rutland, mostly over the old D&H Slatepicker line, then on its own rails up to Middlebury Gap and down to Rochester, VT. It then proceeds along the White River to Bethel, where it interchanges with Central Vermont/New England Central depending on era I'm running, up to Williamstown, VT and then up to Montpelier on the old CV branch. It shares the tracks from the yard in East Montpelier with my Northeast Railway (Montpelier Jct. to Wells River on the old Wells River, then on trackage rights to Gotham, NH). Misty Ridge runs up the old Wells River Ry. on shared NE Ry. tracks to Marshfield (Summerside on my line) and diverges up to Danville and interchange with St. J & LC, VN, LV, or NHV depending on era being operated, up through Sutton and down through Lyndonville, VT and interchange with CP/NV/MMA depending on era, then up through Kirby and Newark to Island Pond, the northern terminus, where it meets another of my lines, the Connecticut Headwaters. CH runs from Island Pond through the woods up to Canaan and MEC/NSRC interchange, through Pittsburg NH over the top of the Connecticut Lakes and down to Rumford, ME. My fourth line is Western Maine, running from Ft. St. Francis down through the Allagash to Clayton Lake and on to Kineo, ME, then down to Bingham, over MEC trackage rights to Skowhegan, then down to the shore at Belfast. The main line runs west from Skowhegan to Rumford and CH and MEC interchanges, then on to Gotham, where it meets up with the Northeast.
My modeling philosophy is to primarily model New England railroading from 1950 to present. To do this, I don't fasten down buildings on my permanently scenic'd layouts (3) so I can change era and operations at will. Buildings do have some weeds glued to the foundation base, so the do look permanently mounted on the layouts. It also means I can model multiple eras of a railroad (for example, I model BAR from the original gray/gray diesels through the blue and gray or silver, the dark blue and yellow, the tri-color, the two tone blue, and the Canadian American eras)...and in my fleet of 563 locomotives at present (almost 200 custom painted and detailed for the 50 or so roads I model, some with custom prototype or fantasy road decals I had custom made), I have FLEETS of at least three engines for most unless like the Quaboag Transfer, they only had two engines period. I can also change operating characteristics from logging and gravel pits in northern Maine and northeastern Vermont to medium industrial areas in southern New England. I have 2,100+ freight cars, most for local roads, 45 passenger non- or powered cars, and almost 100 cabooses for almost every road I model, even the custom ones like New Hampshire & Vermont.
I also have THREE layouts, a small 1'x6' shelf layout suitable for one engine, a larger 42"x7' layout that handles three engines, and a third one 15"x7' shelf layout that handles two engines. Since it's normally only me running trains, I have actually downsized from a much larger layout to be able to run everything by myself and still maintain and customize more and more of my fleet.
Of my engines, about 200 are DCC, but I run them all DC. I had too many when DCC came along to be willing to toss them all, and not enough money or knowledge to convert them all--so even someone like me with extensive means has limits. What all of this variety DOES mean is that I never get bored operating trains, or with a single operating scheme.
