Video Download: Grosser’s Nostalgia Trip by Ray and Renee Grosser
Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 31
“Grosser’s Nostalgia Trip” is a 1950’s era re-creation of the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Saint Marie Railroad, otherwise known as the Soo Line. You may have seen this layout at a train show, or at the NMRA National Conventions. Ray and Renee are the husband and wife team who built the Soo Line as a way to remember their childhoods in Minnesota. They both had family members who worked for the railroads. By taking this layout to conventions across the country, the Grosser’s are popular and well-traveled promoters of the model railroading hobby. Renee is one of the finest structure builders in the hobby today, and Ray is responsible for planning and developing a multiple award-winning portable layout. Ray and Renee will show you about designing houses using pictures, applying a stucco-like finish, making stone walls, building foreground quality trees and installing a Digitrax DCC decoder in a steam locomotive. 59 minutes.
