Layout tours

Bob Sterner's Soo Layout

On Nov 5th 2004 we took a look at Bob's Soo layout set in 1959. Though just 5'*8' it packs a lot of scenery into a little space!

Two trains meet under the Soo overpass - guess which railroad is the main hauler in this town...

George Isaac's Traction Layout

George has been a long time modeler and transit advocate and invited us to check out his layout in the spring of 2004. Based out east in the heyday of traction it is a great layout with working overhead wire and all... George is seen below on the right and in the last photo in this series as he checks on a stuck car. Thanks for the tour George!
