Luis describes his AP&W layout as following
The AP&W is a modern-era layout set in the fictitious
southwestern Pennsylvania town of Hillsdale. The layout is a modified
oval, with a split yard in front and the town in back. Since there are no
industries, the action is mostly in the yard, with passing trains rolling
through. It's not an "operating" layout, but a "photo-op" layout!
Look for to seeing it and taking some photos
