Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 3

Dean Freytag and C.J. Riley, two master model railroaders, bring you their home layouts. Dean’s South Ridge Lines is home to the steel industry and his nationally-honored, scratchbuilt structures. C.J.’s Kanawha & Western Allegheny hauls coal from the mountains of West Virginia to the steel making furnaces of the Ohio Valley. Dean’s layout features specialized rolling stock, blast furnaces, and an operating humpyard. C.J.’s railroad is based on the Western Maryland and travels rural Appalachia. Both Dean and C.J. will show you some of their special techniques. Dean demonstrates the weathering of a mill gondola and how he finds new uses for household items. C.J. builds a forest in a small vertical space, and colors a structure without paint. You’re sure to enjoy all the railroad action and inspiration in this tribute to two outstanding modelers. 52 minutes.
