Here's my version of the LAJ in Vernon CA. It's HO scale & currently being built. The layout is in a 10' x 14' room & is a VERY
compressed version. It will have the B Yard, 7 Leads (switching areas) plus the ATSF Malabar Yard (for staging) & their Vernon Team. Four of the leads will be "stacked" to get more switching in the same space. Here's a link to some info on my layout in Google: http://tinyurl.com/qdrhaut
Have the LAJ Switching Maps by Charlie Slater ex LAJ/ATSF/BNSF conductor & modeler. Also have been collecting alot of pix of their locos (steam thru MK1200G), maps, etc. that I'm willing to share. If you have any questions about any of this please ask away. I'm also interested in knowing if there any other LAJ &/or switching RR modelers.
