CGW's major yard and base of operations. There is a farm at the east end of Oelwein, and the Rock Island interchange serving a Feed Mill to the west.
|This is an overview of the east end of Oelwein. The barn and farmhouse are both Laser-Kits. The MOW equipment is stored on a poorly maintained siding to the left.|
|Here is the tower protecting the east end of the Oelwein yard limits. It was built from an AMB Laser-Kit and painted in CGW colors. It has modest interior detailing also.|
|Now we move over to the west end of Oelwein. This feedmill is across the Rock Island interchange track. A CGW RS-2 is delivering a load of feed before heading back to Oelwein yard.|
|Here comes a brace of CGW F-units out of staging and into the west end of Oelwein. This picture is a good illustration of the drainage ditches that we have tried to add around the entire layout. Water should always have a place to run, even if it won't rain in your layout room. It adds to the authenticity of model photograaphs.|
