I am retired from the heavy highway construction business and we performed asphalt and concrete work for states and the government.
The layout was modeled after small but upscale village in Plainville Connecticut where the concrete plant was located, and the quarry was also there.
We have since moved to Florida full time.
I since have elected to build small layouts and donate same to children’s hospitals. They will illustrate the North Pole , winter, and Christmas.
Before we moved, most of the layout was dismantled and donated to the Torrington Connecticut Model Railroad club youth program.
Can’t wait to see what these creative young modelers come up with.
Love your emails and tips of the trade.
I guess at 78 year’s old ,i am just a guy with a schoolboy heart.
A big thanks to Frank – and what a wonderful thing to do with his layouts – I’m sure they are very much appreciated by the kids in hospital.
That’s all for today folks, please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget, the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to take your first step towards your own layout.
