Rochelle Intermodal N Scale Intermodal & Switching Layout

Rochelle Intermodal

Welcome to the Rochelle Intermodal website, showcasing my N scale layout. This layout is loosely based on Rochelle, Illinois, and has an intermodal facility (based on Global III) and industrial switching areas (based on Caron Road, Rochelle, IL.). This website follows the progress of the construction of my Rochelle Intermodal N scale layout, with photos and videos.

Turntable test – decoder fitted

May 30th, 2016

I have fitted a Digitrax DZ143 decoder to control my Peco turntable. Using a decoder allows fine control, allowing easy track alignment using slow speeds. Testing after installation in the baseboard.

I’ve also installed the main power and accessory buses & LocoNet cable under the loco facility boards.  I think I have decided on a track plan for this area, but will have a look again over the next few days before finalising it.

New industry for Caron Road

January 31st, 2016

I’ve started work on a new industry in the Caron Road industrial estate area of the layout, Ryder Industries ‘Rochelle Logistic Center’, which is a cold storage facility which will accept unit trains of Trinity Reefers.  I’m still working out which kits to buy, but there will be much kitbashing involved to fit the kits into the space.

So far I have fitted the track in and installed the droppers.  Next is to install the turnout motors and glue everything down.  I also found time to build another block signal!
