Most importantly, I like ‘Railway’ more than I do ‘Railroad’. Don’t ask me why, I just do. Every other line I’ve modelled has been ‘Railway’, so I’m keeping with that tradition.
But the layout I’m building will be different than the actual State Belt, in ways big and small (it’s a condensed version, if nothing else), and calling mine the ‘State Belt Railway’ is one way to note the differences.
Bill Kaufman’s is the ‘State Belt Railroad’. Mine is the ‘Railway’.
