Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 51

The Conrail layout of Ken McCorry is so big it takes a train 45 minutes to run its full length. The mainline of 25 scale miles occupies its own 3400 square foot barn. The steel mill takes up 300 square feet. With 5 decks the railroad is big. The bottom two decks represent staging. The top deck is a branchline, and the middle two decks are the visible parts of the railroad. The layout follows the route of the old Pennsylvania Railroad from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Buffalo, New York in 1980 and that means helpers on the 3% grade. Ken will show you how to cantilever your benchwork, make scenery with plaster gauze, build structures with gator foam, and use operating signals. 59 minutes.
