The D&S is a proto/freelance layout loosely based on the Lehigh Gorge area in Pennsylvania. The railroad is centered between Wilkes-Barre and Allentown, with each city having a large classification yard. The single track main line is fully CTC controlled with US&S type S signals (searchlight), communications are FRS radio when needed. Traffic is widely based, dense and typical of the modern era double stacks, TOFC, unit coal, ethanol, and trash trains along with heavy manifest traffic going into the New Jersey, Philadelphia and south eastern US from New England and points north west. There are many locals and serious switching, as well as block swapping and other work. 

The host's COVID policy is for all guests to be fully vaccinated per CDC guidelines and to wear masks if exhibiting any upper respiratory symptoms.
