The HO scale Missabe Northern Railway is essentially two railroads joined at the hip in Duluth, MN, their eastern-most terminus. The main deck (Mainline Division) runs railroad-west from Duluth to the Twin Cities Terminals of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The other line (Iron Range Division) climbs Proctor Hill west out of Duluth to an upper deck that represents running from Proctor railroad-west to the Mesabi Iron Range on mixed DM&IR and GN facilities.
Primarily steam with back-emf control, most with sound. 4200 feet of hand laid code 70 track on spline roadbed with 565 scratch-built-in-place turnouts. Now using easy-to-learn DTC (Direct Traffic Control) train orders as used on my alma mater C&NW.
