Now I remember that was my original plan for my SD&AE HCD layout was to represent El Centro with part of the wye from The SD&AE into The SP, the depots, the small industrial area in El Centro and a backdrop representing what I could do from the track, the depot to the businesses in the back of the depot area.
LDE parameter. Modeling the depots is a challenge. They are both colonnade design, the SP and junior SD&AE depot next door. As of July 2011, they have both been torn down. UP was using the main SP depot as offices and shops. I will have to rely on Internet pictures and the few I was able to take in 2009.
