Bob Chase & The Boston & Albany

By far Bob has the most complete layout of the group. Again this layout was just bare benchwork when we started. Bob finally took the plunge and let me start scenery on it. He was in shock when he saw a giant "pink" Styrofoam mountain to the ceiling and wasn't sure if this was a good idea! He wired the layout for DCC using Digitrax and away we went. Bob loves to build interesting laser cut kits, 95% of the buildings on his layout are wood craftmans kits. Years ago he started collecting pre-built buildings and then decided he could build them himself. The layout is a steam-diesel transition period, on a fictious stretch of the Boston & Albany. It features a main yard, a city, rolling country side to the mountain and back. The focus now is to detail the hell out of the layout. This winters project will be to add a large staging yard to the layout, and of course we will post pictures of this!
