Rochelle Intermodal N Scale Intermodal & Switching Layout

Rochelle Intermodal

Welcome to the Rochelle Intermodal website, showcasing my old N scale layout. This layout was loosely based on Rochelle, Illinois, and had an intermodal facility (based on Global III) and industrial switching areas (based on Caron Road, Rochelle, IL.). This website is a place to show you my old Rochelle Intermodal N scale layout, with photos and videos. This website is no longer being updated.

My new layout, BNSF Chicago Sub N Scale can be found on the following website:
