Mount Hood Railroad in HO Scale
This month we visit a freelanced pike that travels through the Cascade Mountains, the High Desert, the Blue Mountains, and the Palouse to connect Portland, Oregon and Spokane, Washington. The railroad has an interesting story and hauls quite a variety of freight with an emphasis on logs and related products like woodchips and paper; ore, coal, and gravel; and mixed goods shipped between eastern and western Oregon. Our DVD feature shares a creative ride-along story on the club’s Pioneer passenger train as it travels westward as well as a story about the operations of the layout and the railroad’s mythical history.
Blue Arrow Lines in HO Scale
See Bodo Capeller’s freelanced Pacific Northwestern layout in action. He runs an interesting mix of Great Northern and Amtrak electrics and Rio Grande Southern diesel locomotives. The small layout is well-scenicked with a bay, countryside, and two towns. Bodo built custom catenary wiring for the layout, adding to the realism of his work. He runs passenger service and has many people and other details included on the Blue Arrow Lines.
