Termite & Tarantula Railway

On30 scale, Owner: Gerald Styles


The Termite -n- Tarantula R.R. is a freelance On30 narrow gauge layout. The time frame is set in the mid 1930’s and the focus is mining. The scenery represents the west and is reflective of high Chihuahuan Desert and mountainous terrain. The place setting of the layout is not a specific place, but feels like a little bit of New Mexico, Texas and Colorado.

Structures are mainly scratch-built or bashed. Many structures feature full interiors. The “Termite’” is a double-deck shadow-box style layout. It has several unique features including:  automatic train elevator, animated scenes and much more for the viewer to discover while visiting. Track is a mix of hand-laid, and flex track. Turnouts are mostly hand laid. Digitraxx DCC control all locomotives have DCC and sound.
