Alex sent in a few more photos of his layout. He is wanting to start a new layout, but he has not yet brought himself to tearing the existing one down. Judging from the photos, we can all imagine that that would indeed be a very hard decision. Alex is a Frenchman modeling in Sn3. He has written a book about his layout, and you can see more photos on this page.
Warren Judge has a very nice display layout that shows what can be done with Sn2. He provided information and photos of his 4' x 6' layout, clearly showing that one doesn't need much space to build a beautiful layout in S-scale. You can view more photos on this page.
The Reading is moving into New Jersey. Bill took this photo of his Reading collection, steam and diesel trains pulling both freight and passenger trains.
On the modules of the Pittsburgh S-Gaugers, an interchange car from the Penn Creek Valley prompts a discussion between two workers on how the passing of the Penn Creek's president, noted S modeler Sam Powell, prompted the moving of the entire railroad from Maryland to Pennsylvania in 2016! The coal yard was modeled by members of the Pittsburgh S-Gaugers; rolling stock is a mix of brass imports, plastic models, A.F. conversions, and wood kits.
Tom Hess has had to dismantle his layout this past month, but photos were taken of this beautiful layout before its demise. You can see more photos and a description of Tom's layout on this page.
"Who let the dogs out?" Bill Lane is well-known for having a collection of Dachshunds at home. We don't know if the owners of CatzPaw Innovations are aware of that, but they have produced a couple of Dachshund models in S-scale. Bill's scene shows a number of them. You get several per package. Be sure to visit the CatzPaw web site, if you are wanting to add animals to your layout or diorama; they have a good number of them.
This photo shows a Bachmann Plasticville church found on Joe Kimber's layout. A couple of extra photos were added to Joe's page about his layout on this web site. Joe is an expert at drawing track plans, and you can find this church on the track plan of his currently layout as item #45.
The March/April 2021 NASG Dispatch features an article by Gaylord Gill on how he constructed the "Randy's Bar & Grill" model for his layout. The model started with the S-scale version of the Bar Mills "The 1-Kit". Of course, Gaylord enhanced the model by adding many scratch-built features.
