Two Layouts To Be Featured On Tour #22
- Here are some details on two of the layouts featured on Tour #22 on November 20. Both are HO scale.
'20s & '30s Modular Model Railroad Club The '20s & '30s Modular Model Railroad Club recreates the Golden Age of railroading modeled in HO scale. Members build their own six-foot-long modules which depict North American railroading during the period from 1920 through December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor Day). Members have built a total of thirty-five modules since the club began in 1991. Each module or group of modules meets standards for interface such as rail location, height and electrical connections so that each can connect with another. The club sets up at public shows in Southern California about six times a year. Website: http://www.trainweb.org/20s30s/
This club will set up in Glendora.
George DeFrancesco The Desert Belt Lines fill an entire three-car garage with rocky cliffs reaching to the ceiling and numerous industrial branches. This layout features many sound-equipped locomotives, DCC control and several large, scratch-built bridges. The main line covers five scale miles, taking trains from belt to eye level. The extensive yard and industrial facilities generate heavy traffic on this free lanced railroad.
George was an original member of the Rusty Rails round-robin group in Orange County. His current layout is located in Alta Loma.
