This HO layout is a freelanced version of the Santa Fe in 1955 between Kansas City, MO, and Congo Jct., MO. Since the mainline is shared with the Union Pacific, steam and diesel power of both railroads is visible. It is a J-shaped layout in a 35′ x 14.5′ basement space. The builder is the local Lansing scenery guru and a nationally known expert who has given numerous NMRA clinics at the Division, Regional, and National levels.Thus, the visitor will see scenery, scenery, scenery with multiple details per square inch. Building, painting, modifying, and detailing plastic structure kits of all sizes is a primary love. The Kansas City area has at least 17 major large buildings with many more adjacent smaller buildings. Gas station signs are another example of the fine detail. The layout includes hilly and rural areas. Traditional DC powers the layout.
