Jim Younkins
Mud Bay and Southern

Jim's enormous and smooth-running layout easily keeps 14 operators busy. Freelanced but based on modern Northwest prototype railroad and industrial operations, it features both long mainline runs and extensive switching work at large mill complexes and other industrial sites. Beautiful scenery and scratchbuilt structures evoke the feel of Northwest railroading.
