Ashfield & Western

 By Richard Cox

 

What you are seeing is the result of about 10 years and the area is about 10 by 20 and the result of my modelling ability. If it was built, I built it, if it was painted I painted it. If a mistake was made, I made it.

The Ashfield and Western is a local independent road that  connects to the PRR for outside connections. The A&W supports the "Kay Coal Company" as well as the town of Ashfield. The local A&W shops act as a secondary repair facility for the PRR . Steam is, for the most part gone during the week, but on weekends the steam passenger units are local favourites. Since the A&W still repairs and runs steam they will bid on repairing others steam units so, almost anything steam may show up. The A&W sees the diesel as the future and is always looking for a road that may wish to sell a damaged or unneeded unit. The "new " diesel will be rebuilt and usually painted before going into service.  The owners also realize that they can make money by owning rolling stock.  All of the signals work on a self designed block occupancy   detector and I have just finished the conversion to DCC by Lenz.
