This diorama will be in built in N Scale as a static model. The photo at the left shows the model of Pioneer Mills as a work in progress. I'll post more photos as the project nears completion.
In the meantime, I am looking for more information about the Virginia Locomotive and Car Works. Other that the Birds Eye image of Alexandria (see above), I have seen no photos of this facility. This website has some historical information.
Here is an image from the SMU archives of one of the locos they built.

The 4-4-0 Virginia in my blog's side bar was also built by them.
If you know of any further information about Virginia Locomotive and Car Works that could aid in building the model, please pass it on.
