Railfanning in 1:87 Scale: Act I, Scene I

A few months ago, I started building a model train table. While G would have been the optimal scale, I went with HO because of size considerations.

The layout focuses on Amtrak of the mid-to-late 1980s, which makes the F7A model (No. 157) seem a bit out of place.

When the table is complete, it will feature an outer circle and a small three-track station with a pair of high-level platforms. In addition, a spur will feature street running for a small short-line railroad (and streetcars).

Please check back soon for a full back story about the railroad and town that is under construction.
