Ben Sullivan's RR Photos & Journal
04/25/2000 MCMR

I have been a member of the Maryland Central Model Railroad club since 1999. The club runs ran a beautiful layout featuring many types of operation, scenery, locomotives, and rolling stock. Currently, (10/2004) the layout is undergoing a conversion from Dynatrol walk around throttles to a Digitrax DCC system is no more; it was demolished 4 years ago. Also, several scenic elements are being updated, added to, and modified. The club has a great website : where you can find out more info, and meeting and special events schedules. These photos are of subjects at various points around the old layout. All images shot with Kodak DC210 Plus digital camera.
