First topic message reminder :

i am also still looking for some more cylindrical grain hoppers, and also anything of interest in the way of model buildings and track-side scenery, so feel free to offer some up if you have any laying about or know how to come about them

Hello everyone. 

As of 9:10PM Central time on 10/8/2019, there has been no progress on track work but I will admit that I am looking for some more HO Scale shipping containers (specifically 20' and 45' foot ones made by companies called Athearn and Walthers). Also, My twin brother is planning on changing the couplers on his new locomotive before putting it into service because he is not a fan of the ones it came with.

Please stay tuned for further updates as the PLRX saga continues.

Hello everyone, got a small update here.

The PLRX will be getting two more 20' and 40' containers from its English friend Martin soon but this will be it from him for a while due to financial crisis that he's currently having. Frustratingly there is still no track work done as yet but some of the cardboard boxes used to store blankets have disappeared.

Stay tuned for further updates as the construction progress continues.

Hello everyone, here's another update.

As of 6:15PM Central time on 10/18/2019, the likelyhood of the PLRX getting the containers mentioned in my previous update is not looking very good due to an increase in their asking price. As for the matter of track work, its ongoing but such is frustratingly slow due to the priorities of life. I have also suggested naming some of the locations on the setup, but such is not a major priority at this time so its subject to change at any time.

Please stay tuned as the construction progress continues.

Can't you find the containers your looking for on Ebay or something?

The container pack was found on Ebay but the asking price went up for some reason.

Hello everyone, got another update to share.

As of 17:55hrs Central Time on 10/20/2019, there has been some work on the tracks but not as much as I was hoping (a piece of track was pulled up and replaced by a switch on the eastbound line to form an interchange and the beginnings of spur tracks for the grain elevator have been installed). I should also mention that my half of the PLRX's "Mixed Pack" train has grown to 10 cars after my purchase of a 2nd stand-alone well car (which came with a pair of 40' containers) during a weekend show called Manitoba Mega Train. Unfortunately (and quite frustratingly), my twin brother has decided to play selfish, spoiled & stubborn brat again because of the train length issue which has come up again. 


Such cannot be helped though as the some of our intermodal cars are representative of very long cars (the longest would be 345' in real life) and we only have so much space to use.

Please stay tuned as the PLRX saga continues.

Hello everyone, here's another update.

As of 14:15hrs on 10/23/2019, there is almost enough track installed to allow for at least one complete line around the PLRX. Getting the setup powered will obviously be the next task but such is at the mercy of life's priorities. Unfortunately my twin brother is continuing to let his very noticeable but as yet undiagnosed OCD cloud his judgement whenever he doesn't get what he wants in relation to this matter though, and these (along with life's priorities) are making it difficult for me to be optimistic about future operations.

Please stay tuned for further updates as the PLRX's saga continues.

So find one from a different seller then.

Hello everyone, here's another update from me

As of 1:05PM Central Time on 10/26/2019, the main lines of the PLRX are complete. It will still be some time before the setup receives power though as work on some secondary track needs to be completed. I will admit that this information came to me while I was posing the update before this one, but I decided to give BD's other users a break and post this update today.

Unfortunately the railroad is having to make do with what shipping containers it currently has at present, due to a financial crisis. The PLRX's management remains cautiously optimistic that it can obtain more container traffic in the very near future though.

Please stay tuned as the PLRX saga continues.

Hello everyone, another PLRX update here!

As of 1:45PM Central Time on 10/28/2019, work on getting the Phoenix Line powered & operating has begun. I've also been informed that, due to some disagreements, the operating configuration of the railroad's "Mixed Pack" train has come under review. I for one am disapointed to have learned of this but I'm trying to remain optimistic that the review will be completed soon.

While this railroad's track already runs through the town of Rustyville (as well as its suburb of Stackville) and the village of Hillside, there is a plan to extend these to the town of Oakdale at some point in the future (in actual fact the "Oakdale" section of the layout has not been built yet but this work will be happening).

Please stay tuned as the PLRX saga continues.

Hello everyone!

As of 2:15PM Central Time on 10/29/2019, the PLRX has power!!! This development has created at least two issues though, and there is currently no way to fix them. Unfortunately, these problems are happening at two sets of switch points and we do not have replacements for them. Fixing these problems is going to be a challenge but I'm trying to stay somewhat optimistic about getting this done however as it needs to be done. 

Building some secondary trackage has yet to be done but I hope that it gets done soon. I've also made a suggestion to change the track of a spur near a very tight turn to accommodate our future plans for that particular area. Also, due to dirty track and locomotive wheels, there is a LOT of cleaning work happening as well.

Please stay tuned as the PLRX saga continues.

Hello everyone, got another update to share.

As of 2:00PM Central Daylight Savings Time on 10/31/2019, track work on the Phoenix Line has resumed but this work is happening on some of the secondary tracks (the passenger car yard and its entry lines) of the layout. Frustratingly my twin brother has taken it upon himself to remove all of his rolling stock from the setup, but has decided to leave a few cars on for testing purposes. Obviously I'm not thrilled about this, but every single one of my best efforts to talk him out of it have been a complete waste of time. 

As a result of this, two of this railroad's trains (the Barley and Grain Express as well as the Mixed Pack) have been cut in half. Such is not the best of outcomes but I will try and live with it as there's no other option. Another matter that is causing some disappointment at present is that there still isn't any talk of building the "Oakdale" section of the layout but I suspect that such is due to the physical labor involved and life's other priorities.

Please stay tuned as the Phoenix Line's story continues.

Hello everyone, got another update to share!

1.) As of 1:45pm Central Standard time on 11/3/2019, the Phoenix Line's Barley and Grain Express has reverted to its original name (the Grain Express) and is able to operate with up to 49 cars again. The PLRX's Board of Directors has expressed its desire to obtain a few more grain hoppers though, and this train will probably growing to a maximum length of 52 cars in the near future. 

2.) After a lengthy (and occasionally heated) debate, the line's "Mixed Pack" train is going to be tested in order to determine if its better to have it operated in 2 separate sections or keep it as a combined train. According to the discussion, this test may be happening at some point next week but such is not guaranteed.

3.) The plan to modify a section of track in order to accommodate the unloading of two and three level autorack cars has not been acted upon as yet, but local scuttlebutt remains optimistic that such is going to be happening.

Please stay tuned as the Phoenix Line story continues.

Hello everyone, here's another update on the Phoenix Line's story (as of 8:45am on 11/5/2019)...


1.) The "Mixed Pack" service has been renamed as the "Stack and Trailer Pack" to better reflect the cargo it carries. 

2.) Recent power issues have forced the railroad to postpone testing of the longest version of the Stack and Trailer Pack's train. This will be happening just the same however, as its an important task. Interestingly there has been some additions to the service's power pool (EMD SD45's 7604 and 6144 as well as GE AC4400CW 8356).   

3.) Work on the secondary track lines is currently on-going but connecting the grain elevator's loading and storage spurs as well as the intermodal yard to the westbound main line appears to be the priority at this time. Unfortunately large gaps in the track have created some frustration but the work is happening regardless. In addition to this work, changes to the wiring of a yard entry track are going to be made as well due to issues that the original wiring has created.  

Please stay tuned as the Phoenix Line's story continues.
