Come along as we climb the high mountain rails of West Virginia to explore Tony Koester’s one-of-a-kind model of Allegheny Midland Railroad. Discover the breathtaking landscapes and perfectly recreated mining communities that have made Tony’s extension of Nickel Plate Road one of the most admired model railroads in the country.

In this series, Tony explains to host Allen Keller what all went into making this scale stretch of WV industrial history, including expert tips for planning and building the AM. You’ll learn about the prototype that inspired this spectacular layout, and get a taste of the history of this region in the 1950s. Join us, won’t you?
