How a Southern Pacific Engineer Kept the Siskiyou Line Alive in HO
You'll love Tom Dill's Southern Pacific Ashland Subdivision, an HO scale layout based in southern Oregon with Ashland as the focal point. The layout is a freelanced version of part of the Siskiyou Line based from 1948-1952. You'll see freight trains with helpers heading upgrade, often led by 2-10-2 Decapods. You'll also see the Espee's Rogue River and Scoot passenger trains and some diesel trains working the route. SP fans won't want to miss our tour of this model railroad.
