Layouts in the December 2018 Issue

Take a Step Back in Time at Cajon Summit

Tour Jon Harrison’s precise model of Cajon Summit in HO scale. The layout is based in 1950. Jon models the summit itself, including the structures and the hills as they were at the time. You’ll see the AT&SF’s steam locomotives and both Santa Fe and UP passenger trains. This museum-quality layout has beautiful scenery that will be familiar to Cajon fans. We include an article about the layout and Jon’s unique approach to building, lots of photos, and video of the layout, and an interview with Jon.

Cab Forwards on the Modoc Line

See Gene Neville’s freelanced version of the Southern Pacific’s Modoc Line, the Great Basin & Pacific. The layout is based in the transition era. Gene runs SP steam power on the pike and his own diesels in a paint scheme similar to the SP’s tiger stripe. Like on the prototypical Modoc, he moves high quantities of lumber out of Oregon, but Gene’s version of the line has lots of switching opportunities. He has modeled beautiful eastern California desert scenery on the layout. We include photos, video, and an article about the GB&P.
