Paul Lutz' Conrail Marion Branch

The HO scale Conrail Marion Branch railroad is set in the mid-1990’s time frame. It is loosely based on an existing line running north and south from Elkhart (Goshen, IN) to Indianapolis (Avon, IN) with intermediate yards/switching points at south Anderson, Marion, Warsaw (Ft. Wayne) and Peru, IN. This is a double deck, point-to-point mainline with a third, lower staging level – all of which is connected by a helix. The mainline run is approximately 300 feet. Train control is via a Digitrax duplex system and operations are controlled by a dispatcher who is in radio contact with all train crews.
