Dr. Joe Nichols Sr., MMR's Delta Southern Railroad (HO)
Layout Tour Dates
Important Note: For 2020, there will be no "open house", in-person layout tours. All Piedmont Pilgrimage tours will be "virtual", video-only tours.
The Delta Southern Railroad of Dr. Joe Nichols, Sr., MMR, includes hand laid track, operating signals, four freight yards, and many passenger trains. A color camera in a Proto 1000 RDC enables the operator to get an engineer's eye view of the layout while operating from a mockup of an SD40-2 control stand. The Delta Southern's latest addition is an industrial switching area featuring more than 70 buildings - almost all are scratch built. Joe Sr.'s specialty is close detail work. A must-see for beginners and veterans of the hobby.
