The OWNRy (Oregon, Washington, Navigation & Railway) is a protolanced N scale layout based in Pacific Northwest. With Portland, Oregon as the major division point, 5 major Class 1 railroads intersected both freight and passenger traffic. The Union Pacific, delivers freight and passengers to and from Portand and the east coast via La Grande, Oregon. The SP&S (jointly run by both GN and NP) runs from Spokane through Pasco, Wa then along the North Bank to Portland. The Southern Pacific serves as a conduit from Portland to California. Pool traffic runs from Seattle and Tacoma to Portland. The OWNry also operates a fictional branchline from Yakima and Walla Walla and Lyons Ferry to Pasco, Washington for interchange. CTC is used for track authority on the mainlines with Digitrax DCC for engine control along with car cards and waybills for freight forwarding. It also features several class one passenger trains, including City of Portland, the Daylight, Empire Builder and Northcoast Limited. The trackwork is complete, with scenery about 65% complete (needs more detail) and expect another 20% complete this winter.
