Sunday Photo Fun - 1/22/23
Posted by fifedog on Sunday, January 22, 2023 8:10 AM

Nice shot of Darlene rolling past the vineyard, outside of Moorefield, WV. The second hand 4-4-0 (from some regional down South) is squeezing out a few extra seasons on the WAPPOCOMO & ALLEGANY RR, and whispers are that the B&O will be taking over the entire line by years end. Wappocomo is the Native American name for the South Branch Potomac River.

Very nice. By the way how big is your layout?

Thanks guys. The layout is roughly 17x12, around the wall/elongated "E" shape. 4 loops, three O, one S. Zero grades. 
The vineyard was inspired by Kinkade Studios' Wine Country Living.
