Jon Silverberg's Denver, Rio Grande & Western
Jon’s On30 scale DRG&W / RGS is set in the late summer of 1942. The 22’ x 27’ layout depicts the line that runs from Durango and that, eventually, will run to Ridgeway, CO. The track plan is double deck around the walls with two peninsulas. There is a helix and staging tracks in a separate room.
The layout is being built for future operating sessions and will feature transport of coal and yellow cake for the Manhattan Project.
The layout uses Micro Engineering code 83 track and a combination of Micro Engineering and Fast Tracks turnouts. It is powered by Digitrax DCC and uses wireless throttles. At the present time all the lower level trackage is in, and scenery is outstanding.
