Pacific Northwest Logging and Mining Layout

This model railroad layout depicts the popular Steam to Diesel transition era of the late 1940's to 1950's. The theme is the Pacific Northwest from Washington State to Minnesota, showcasing the Fallen Flags of the Great Northern, Western Pacific, and Northern Pacific Railroads.

From a large central railroad yard and locomotive servicing facility overlooked by a lengthy urban scene, to distant travel over several rivers up into the rugged mountains, this layout is a visual treat! With numerous tunnels, a great logging scene, and a rural harbor that brings back memories of days gone by, this feature-laden display has a complex and exciting feel, yet provides easy and enjoyable operation for one or more.
