The C & G RR Layout Update 4

This HO scale layout by Chuck Shutz of West Palm Beach, Florida, is a very small and simple oval layout with intense and intricate scenery. The layout is only 44″ by 66″, but it has as much detail as some larger layouts.

Chuck’s small layout models a riverside resort set in the 1950’s complete with a picnic area, a playground with kids frolicking, a foot bridge, a backyard BBQ, and kids fishing from a dock. The oval track layout has a tunnel, two bridges over the river and two road crossings. Not only is this layout imaginative, but Chuck’s attention to detail shows through clearly in these pictures.

Updated May 29, 2010: Here are some photos of my “scratch building” of a one stall “Engine House” for my C & G RR. Those “graffiti artists” have been leaving their marks on the side of our engine house, so we see! Never a dull moment at the C & G RR!
