The Name

The name comes from an old bowling buddy of mine. In Phoenix a long time a go we had a local horror show host named 'Edmus P. Scary'. Well my friend thought the way I bowled was scary, so he started calling me Redmus P. Scary. Over time the P. Scary was dropped, so now it's just Redmus.

The Layout

This is the thrid Redmus Short Line layout. This layout is 4' X 10' with a small L shaped uppler level.  The upper level is reached using a 4% grade at first then about a 7% grade.  This was required because of space limitations.  The upper level contains two businesses and a small yard.   Adding to some of the 'fun' is the fact the layout is home to a couple of private railroad passenger cars that get moved from their home track to the passenger station or yard.  The premise is a fictitious section of the greater Phoenix Arizona area that the Southern Pacific railroad could no longer service. The local businesses found a group of investors to form a small local railroad to service the area. The Southern Pacific railroad still has a mainline that goes through the area and they drop off and pick up rolling stock in a 3 track service yard that holds about 10 cars.

Operations

I recently changed over to DCC but still only have 1 engine but will be adding a second soon.  I do not use a car card system, layout too small I think so I either free lance my operatoins or use the consist generator.
