Rio Grande Southern Railroad in Sn3
Dave Woodrell models the Rio Grande Southern in the late 1930s and early 1940s from Ridgway to Rico, Colorado. He has scratch-built many of the prototype's structures on his beautifully scenicked Sn3 layout. His picturesque version of the RGS should be enjoyable for any Rio Grande Southern or steam era fan.
HO Scale Cloud City & Western Railroad
Jack Tingstad models the freelanced Cloud City & Western Railroad in HO scale. The CC&W is loosely based on the Denver & Rio Grande Southern and runs from Leadville to Glenwood Springs, Colorado. It is predominately a mining railroad, serving several mines in the Colorado Rockies in the 1910s and 1920s. Jack is also a skilled modeler, and his railroad is highly detailed.
