Fall Color on the Baltimore & Ohio in HO
Explore western Pennsylvania and West Virginia during the 1940s-50s on Cliff Cheeseman's HO scale Baltimore & Ohio - Pleasant Valley Division. You'll see a mix of steam and early diesel locomotives on this pike, which is quite detailed and based in Autumn. Come enjoy this freelanced version of the first railroad ever chartered in America. The tour includes a brief history of the prototype, many full-page photos of the layout, details of the layout's construction and lots of scenery and lighting tips from Cliff, and a video of the trains in action. (The video focuses on early diesels.)

Stepping Back into the late 1800s on the Everett & Monte Cristo Railway in HO
Didrik Voss brings a real 1890s Pacific Northwest short line to life on his HO scale layout. You'll see the Everett & Monte Cristo's steam locomotives working the steep grade from Everett, Washington up the Robe Canyon to Monte Cristo in the North Cascades. Didrik's scenery is beautiful, and you'll love seeing his custom-built structures to match the prototype. No video is included in this feature, but we do include a layout map.
