Jay drives truck for a living and he combines the best of his profession and his hobby in these Republic Carloading and Distributing modules.  The lights crossing lights flash and a bell dings as a train passes on the P&E main track.  In the background, Republic's Balwin S-12 waits to go back to work switching cars in and out of the truck terminal.
Many Medford residents recognize this model of the McAndrews overpass.  Jay built it from blueprints of the actual bridge.  In the background is the Republic Carloading and Distributing warehouse and loading docks.  Jay scratch built many of the truck models and custom painted most of the rest. He also built and wired the numerous overhead lights on this module.
McAndrews Overpass and Truck Terminal

A Pacific & Eastern hauler passes by the truck terminal and is blowing for the grade crossing beneath the overpass.  Jay also detailed and painted the new GP-60's pulling the hauler.

Another of Jay's modeling efforts include Rogue Produce and Cold Storage, and of course, more trucks and trailers. 

The SD-9's in the forground were custom painted and weathered by Roger Watkins and featured in an article on locomotive painting in Model Railroader a few years ago.     

Truck Service Bays

Since the pictures above were taken Jay has reworked his truck terminal with additional details and this scene of the service bays.

A Cross Creek Trading truck, painted and lettered by Jay, waits for a train to clear on Track 2.
