If you’re a fan of bustling industrial railroads and the scenery of urban America in the 1950s, Chuck Hitchcock’s masterful layout of the Argentine Division of Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway is one you don’t want to miss! From thoroughly researched big-name passenger trains of the era to its innovative use of urban modeling, the Argentine Division is a railfan’s dream.

As part of his series on some of the greatest layouts in the business, Allen Keller took a trip to Chuck’s home to explore behind the scenes of this remarkable model railroad, and got some valuable insight on the methods Chuck used in constructing the Argentine Division. Come along as we venture down the rails and head into 1953 Kansas City, and tune in to the rest of Allen’s tour and interviews with Chuck, and see how a true master works!
