The Defiance and Northern is a modern day freelanced railroad interchanging with CSX and NS.  It has a two track main line with an operating 'cosmetic' signal system.  A lower staging yard provides trains for the mainline.  The D&N features a scratchbuilt underpass, scratchbuilt rail lubricator, industrial sidings, intermodal yard, the City of Defiance (under construction) and a newly installed talking defect detector.  Scenery is approximately 30% complete.
