Layout Description:

The Adirondack Division represents this New York Central division in 1952. Many of its scratch-built structures and rail cars have been entries and award recipients in Piedmont Division model contests. As a complete modular layout, it has been exhibited at NMRA Northeastern and NMRA Southeastern Region Conventions, as well as these NMRA National Conventions:  2009 in Hartford, CT; 2013 in Atlanta, GA; and 2017 in Orlando, FL.
