Layouts

Layouts are the personal expression of each modeler.  Some are designed for heavy operation, some are only trains running through scenery.  These are the personal layouts of myself and friends presented for your inspiration:

DoorN30: Our traveling product demonstrator and "serving suggestion for On30.

Roberts Ridge:  A family funded gift for Nephew Bobby, the next generation of Train Nut.

Huron Bay and Iron Range:  An attempt to develop a better natural port than Marquette, Michigan, ended up being dismantled, except in my basement where it was rebuilt as a narrow gauge and operated.

Kenport and Mount Gary:  A lower lakes coal hauler that receives and ships to the Huron Bay and Iron Range.  Designed for and being built by my friend Ken.

Bay Island Gulf and Sandy Shore Railroad:  A 7.5 inch line built by my family on their property along the shores of scenic Koontz Lake, Indiana.

Video from a visit to Jerry Macri's PRR:  The railroad features horseshoe curve, Altoona and Gazleton.  Four track main line PRR action with a separate room with scale air pollution.
