Album: MP459 - Hancock

Looking east at Hancock Jct. on the prototype. I wish I could have modeled this scene more accurately, but due to the arrangement of the room, I accepted the concession of having to put a 180-degree curve in the main at this point, hoping the heavily-wooded area to the left, when modeled, would help to disguise the curve.

Another compromise I chose to make was to move Hillis siding west to Hancock, freeing up about 15' of open mainline running between Hancock and Atlantic. On the prototype, Hillis is about three miles east of Hancock Jct.
