  1. Wait....is Andrew moving on from his CM layout?

    1. Yes, Andy is planning on converting his Colorado Midland RR to the Central Maine RR. He will modify portions of the layout to change the geographic local to Maine. The rolling stock will remain largely the same with some relettering of equipment. Note how each railroad will have similar reporting marks.
