Oregon Valley Railroad in N Scale

Our main feature this month is the impressive Oregon Valley Railroad by Jerry Green. The railroad is a large N scale pike based on the Portland & Western. You'll learn a bit about the prototypical PNWR and its history and you'll enjoy how Jerry models it on his own ORVL, also based in Oregon. We share an interview with Jerry sharing about the layout and how he operates it, an article about the construction of the layout, and lots of photographs. You don't want to miss this layout.
