Welcome to the web site for the CSXT Shenandoah Division!
[NOTE: Effective March 31, 2010, all new content related to the CSX Shenandoah Division will be placed on the CSX Shenandoah Division blog. Read the blog page on this site as well as the welcome post on the blog for more details.]
This web site exists for the purpose of documenting the design, construction, and operations of the CSXT Shenandoah Division, a N scale model railroad owned by B.L. and C.F. Faulkner. This web site is NOT affiliated with nor endorsed by CSX Corporation, CSX Transportation, Norfolk Southern Corporation, or any other railroad entity.
The original N scale CSXT Shenandoah Division layout existed from August 1996 to May 2001. The Original Layout link will take you to some photos of that layout (primarily taken at the last operating sessions), and there are some pictures of the crew as well.
A new CSXT Shenandoah Division layout has been designed for a new home and construction has started, so everything else on this web site applies to the new railroad and is subject to revision as the layout is built. Follow the Design, Construction, and Operations links for more information. The layout plans are contained in the Design area, while progress reports will be published periodically in the Construction section, so be sure to check back often and follow the work on the Shenandoah Division.
Use the links on the left and at the top of each page to navigate the site. Check the What's New page for the latest updates to the site.
