Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 64

The Greeley Freight Station Museum in Colorado is the life long goal of David Trussell. For 50 years he dreamed about building a very large layout that would promote the hobby and be fun to operate. The 5,500 square foot Oregon, California, and Eastern with its own 9.600 square foot building is the result. This layout is so large we had to divide it into two shows. The HO scale OC&E connects Klamath Falls and Lakeview, Oregon in 1975. It hauls freight as a bridge line between these two points using its own motive power and equipment from the Southern Pacific, the Great Northern and the Denver & Rio Grande. It takes a train 1 1/2 hours to cover the entire railroad. David will show you how a prototype boxcar provided additional storage, how to paint and pour a river and how he makes his mountains look so real. 59 minutes.
