Description based on material supplied by the layout owner
Othmar Yard is on the White Mountain Railroad just to the east of Wells River Junction in New Hampshire. The White Mountain operates on a short length of former Boston & Maine trackage, serving a number of small industries. Short workings from Wells River Junction into Othmar Yard are regularly worked by Vermont Systems or Guilford System (now Pan-Am) locos, the White Mountain running the services that continue through the yard and further to the east. There is also a small locomotive maintenance facility here.
Industries here include Gray Concrete, Schroeder Chemicals and Van Pelt Plastics. Further east (off stage) are Franklin Feedstuffs and ReRun Lumber.
This layout was built to display an increasing amount of HO American outline stock being collected for a larger, still under construction, project.
A mix of code 75 and code 100 rail is used with points modified for DCC control. Buildings are modified Walthers Cornerstone, Pikestuff or scratchbuilt from Wills sheets. Grass is Noch Electrostatic, with trees and foliage from Woodlands Scenics. Locomotives are all Atlas 'Gold Series' with DCC sound chips. Control uses a Digitrax Super Chief system.
