About

The Blackwing and Western is an HO scale model railroad based on a fictional location on the Great Northern Railway. The town of Blackwing is located in Mid-Western Montana on the Great Northern line from Havre to Great Falls and has several small industries serviced by the Great Northern.

The time period is somewhere around 1958 give or take a few years and the Great Northern is still running steam with the addition of some early diesel power.

This blog will feature posts about the construction of the layout, industries, rolling stock and motive power (and any other railroad related items that come to mind.)
