Mountain Railroading on the Washoe Valley Railway
Tour Ron Ippoliti’s freelanced HO scale layout inspired by the Virginia & Truckee Railroad in Nevada. Ron created his railroad with some similarities, but the Washoe Valley Railway is based in the Pacific Northwest and serves many different industries. He designed the layout for operations, including a transloading site where the narrow and standard gauge lines meet. The railroad interchanges with both the Western Pacific and the Southern Pacific. You’ll enjoy seeing this unique model railroad.
