      The Layout Of The Month photo for August is from John Bruce's HO
      scale Los Feliz & Northwestern. This layout is located in Los
      Angeles and will be featured on Layout Tour #4.

      When one first views John's layout it may seem to be eclectic.
      However, it is well-throughout and purposeful. The owner has taken
      his life-long interest in multiple railroads, regions and eras and
      transformed these into a layout featuring a series of connected
      dioramas, each depicting a widely separated scene. These scenes
      cover widely separate geographical areas and different prototypes.

      The highly-detailed layout represents New England, the mid-Atlantic
      Northeast, Colorado, the desert Southwest, and California. Trackage
      is dual-gauge in some areas and even features some European
      prototype mainline with appropriate catenary.

      Located in a semi-basement area of a hillside house, the benchwork
      and the basic layout plan evolved around fixed elements of the room
      and the general method outlined in John Armstrong's Track Planning
      for Realistic Operation.
