Proto-Freelanced Mining on the CCNG in On3
You'll love this O scale railroad modeled after the Nevada County Narrow Gauge, but in Oregon. The Cascade County Narrow Gauge is based from 1925-1932. It was built by Dave Clune, an exceptional modeler who recently passed away. We share many full-page photos of the layout, an article about its construction and operations, and a diagram of the track plan. You'll enjoy Dave's scenery, details, and structures, much of which he built from scratch. He also built many of the locomotives from kits. All around, the CCNG is a layout you won't want to miss! Please join us in honoring Dave's work.
