N Gauge, US outline modular style mainline railway
THE HISTORY AND LOCATION.
The city of Twin Rivers is situated between the banks of the Rivers, Fox and Lossie. For a small Midwest City it is served well by the railroads.
The mainline through the city is owned by the Chicago & North Western, but several other class 1 railroads have trackage rites to cross from there own lines at each end of town, as this is the most convenient route across the rivers.
Twin Rivers is a busy route and the station is situated along the banks of the Fox River as it swings across the front of the town. This restricts the town from spreading southwards.
The trackage uses the C&NW left hand running rule and has a “Bi-directional centre track, so as to allow Freight traffic to pass when passenger trains are in the station. The City also has a small industrial area, which is reached via the east main line, crossing the River Lossie on its own bridge.
