George Sellios is famous in the model railroading world for his intricately built and weathered structures, so it’s no wonder we wanted to know how he plans the design and placement of the buildings he includes on his model railroad layouts. Host Allen Keller visited the master’s studio to get a closer look at the buildings on George’s layout and hear the thought process George went through in order to create such an immaculate city scene.
In this segment you’ll learn how George goes about planning the organization of his urban buildings (hint: he doesn’t), and discover why sometimes it makes more sense to accommodate your structures to the shape of your trackage. He also points out a few of his favorite features to include on buildings, and talks about what makes roof fixtures such as signage and water towers so important for maintaining a viewer’s attention. George is perhaps the best in the business when it comes to model railroad buildings, so there’s no greater source for this kind of insight!
