Jeff Jarr Chicago & North Western Railroad - HO Scale
Jeff has a free-lance layout based on the C&NW Rwy depicting a fictional line from Chicago to Duluth Minnesota. The layout has over 700 ft of track in his 30 ft x 32 foot basement. Many large Walther's structures were kit-bashed to fit the space, including a 15 stall engine house with turn table, a car shop repair facility, a large grain elevator, a car float, float apron and tug boat, an inter-modal yard, several large bridges with three operating Bascule bridges. The layout also includes unique storage solutions built into the layout for organizing engines, rolling stock and equipment. Track is 95% complete and scenery 10% complete.
