Glenn's Amazing Layout

It's November 1st on Monday and we are getting into the season for trains. How about this layout (it's pretty amazing).


3 Brute Pulling State Cars

Look past the Brutes and check out this layout. I'm going to see if I can find some more video of it. This layout is very impressive. Reminds me of Chuck Brasher's layout. I wish CTT would spend a few minutes writing about this kind of layout...

Great Layout on Youtube

Just checking out some Youtube inbetween pumpkin carving and leaf blowing.

Original Garlick

This is the piece that Mr. Kovacs bought. I think his repro is pretty close.

Garlick Locomotive: A Remarkable Reproduction

"Billy Budd" (Now the Days Inn & Suites) bandit meet, York, Pa. October 13.

This is Paul Kovacs. He is making a beautiful and authentic reproduction of the early Garlick electric locomotive, complete with catenary!

Olson Displays 917B Backdrop

Hit the above link to go Olson Displays and see this new accessory for Prewar layouts. This is absolutely brilliant. This is a prewar backdrop/mountain. It is actually only 4 inches thick and it is made to be place or mounted onto a layout to give that "wide open", mountainous look in a prewar style. This is something Lionel coulda, shoulda, woulda done but didn't. Thanksfully, Olson Displays did it and really whacked the ball out of the park.

Just fiddling with the 2 7/8ths Stuff....

Just moving around some 2 7/8's. I think I am going to make room for an overhead layout on my current layout. I think the Leland Detroit Monorail may have to come off.

By the way, I thought I would drop a pic on of 2 McKeens. Both very different approaches by Dick Mayer to the same car. Either one is really cool (UP or Virginia and Truckee).


Wishing for a Standard Gauge Subway....

Hanging out at Citi Field watching the Mets the other day and I caught some neat shots of subways in Queens. Gotta love these. I wish Lionel or one of the other manufacturers made these in Standard Gauge....
