Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 8

Doug Geiger’s Granite Mountain Railway is a three level HO layout made for operation. Doug has modeled an East-West bridge route thru the Colorado Rockies to Washington state with 3% grades in some places. That means helpers on his long freights with diesel and steam power. A helix is the trick that makes a multi-level railroad a reality, and Doug will describe some of his methods for building the 3 on the Granite Mountain. Doug will also show you how to reduce derailments with a few modifications to common boxcar kits. A railroad that fills a 43X23 foot basement needs lots of pine trees, so Doug will share his method of making them from jute and wire. You’ll enjoy the work of this master layout planner/builder and his Great Model Railroad, the Granite Mountain Railway. 59 minutes.
