Thanks for sharing your group effort of the A&O 1.0, I also am a Appalachian RR modeler and I model L&N SOU and ONEIDA & Western HO scale, and soon to start O scale O&W, look forward to A&O 2.0
You are among the growing number of modelers who are discovering a new delight in the hobby when the trains get bigger, and more “in-your-face”. The O&W had a great charm to it and should make an excellent setting for some O scale scenes. Be sure to take pictures and share what you’ve come up with. It’ll be fun to watch. MRP 2009 will talk about the evolution of A&O 2.0. I’ll try to keep things up to date as significant developments happen.
