In this exclusive tour, model railroading host Allen Keller takes you behind the scenes for a journey along the arid rails of Cat Mountain & Santa Fe Railway. You’ll get an up-close look at David Barrow’s master handywork on his HO scale model of the dry West Texas terrain and the grain hauling system that crosses it. You’ll exit home station at Cat Mountain in the early morning and tail the lead locomotive in its journey through the flatlands headed for Dallas.

David’s HO scale layout took more than 25 years to complete, and has long been an inspiration to modelers worldwide for its innovative use of deserted Texas landscape, visible staging yards and expertly painted rolling backdrops. We’re not kidding when we say this fantastic piece of model railroad construction is one you don’t want to miss!
