SWEETBRIAR & SOUTHERN CAPE RAILROAD
Thanks for visiting our website! The layout measures 12′ x 9′ – irregular. (RR Track Plan). We’re using the M.T.H. Digitial Command System (DCS) and DCS Wifi. We have two main power supplies, an M.T.H. Z-4000 400w transformer for track power and switch motors and an old Lionel ZW 275w for building lights. All Track and Turnouts (18) are Atlas O, but we’ve replaced the Atlas Switch Motors with Z-Stuff DZ-1000s. The Track Roadbed is 3/8″ high Flexxbed, ballasted with Brennan’s Better Ballast.
We’re currently running 7 Locomotives, 3 at a time:
1). M.T.H. SD70ACe Diesel – Pennsylvania (Black), Proto3
2). M.T.H. E8 AA Diesel – Erie Lackawanna, Proto3
3). M.T.H. SD70ACe Diesel – Jersey Central, Proto3
4). M.T.H. 4-8-0 Steam Engine, PRR
5). M.T.H. SW1 Diesel Switcher, PRR (Black), Proto3
6). M.T.H. RS3 Diesel – Long Island, Proto3
7). M.T.H. AS-616 Diesel – Pennsylvania Reading Seashore Lines, Proto3
Most of our Rolling Stock is Lionel Postwar Freight, with a few newer M.T.H. Freight Cars customized for our local area by our local dealer, and M.T.H. passenger cars.
The layout is still under construction and many areas are ‘works in progress’, so please stop back often and check our progress.
