Charlie Millar, MMR,'s Grand River Railway (HO)
The GRR is based on a real division of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It began as a sectional layout built to NMRA modular standards. A large two-level section has been added to expand prototypical operations. Features include scratch-built & kit-bashed structures, hand-laid industrial track, interchange with U.S. railroads, super-detailed scenery and numerous mini-scenes.
