My first layout HO was featured on tour at the 2008 Anaheim Convention in California. After frequent visits to the local Train store (The Train Crossing) in Costa Mesa, Calif. I was introduced to Dain Leese that had started a modular On30 club (CSCModOn30) and shortly after I was hooked and joined the club. I started to build my own modules (6) that were featured at 4-5 local shows around Southern Calif. each year. The time period is set from the late 1800’s to the 1930’s. and my interest was and still is the Narrow Gauge Circle in Colorado. After my move to Georgia with most of my modules I decided to start my own layout and added a few more modules with two loops on either end for continues running. The layout features a fully detailed Western Scale Stamp Mill, the Durango Coaling Tower with Sand House, a 3 stall Roundhouse, a Cattle Yard and several Banta Model Works buildings.
