This model railroad is based on the D&RGW standard gauge line along the Arkansas river in the vicinity of Salida, CO and the narrow gauge line that extended from Salida, CO to Montrose, CO by the way of Marshall Pass and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The time period represented is 1928.
The model is built in a 38 foot by 38 foot basement area and occupies about 2/3 of that space. Mostly it is HOn3 with HO dual gauge and standard gauge track at the Salida end.
As of Spring of 2016, the track work is complete and operational, using NCE DCC. Scenery is 75% complete, there are still several structures and scenes yet to be finished.
