Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 44

This is Part 2 of Howard Zane’s Piermont Division. This HO layout showcases Fifties era Appalachian railroading using equipment from the Clinchfield, Western Maryland, Chesapeake & Ohio and Norfolk & Western. Since we did Vol. 12 in 1992 Howard has increased the layout area by a factor of 4 to 2850 square feet. In this video we concentrate on all the new areas. Howard considers the Piermont to be a painting created with plaster, paper, foam, rocks and dirt where he can bring to life the fabled coal hauling roads of the east. The railroad features spectacular bridges, deep scenes and breathtaking vistas. Howard will show you how to build a structure, color a steam locomotive boiler, build scenery without plaster and add a diorama to a layout. 57 minutes.
