HO Layout

The HO layout shown in these photos also traces its origins to the early 1980’s. Mr. Jack Folger was the chief designer with many of the structures being built by George Klos. Hand laid track was used extensively on the layout.

As the HO layout passed its 20 th birthday, age was beginning to take its toll. Increasing maintenance requirements and the desire of the membership to construct a layout which would utilize the full capabilities of DCC technology led to decommissioning of the layout in 2005. At the present time, a new HO layout is under construction that will feature, multiple train DCC operation, signaling, and state-of-the-art scenery.
