Lex Parker's Denver and Rio Grande Model Railway Layout
I subscribe to an online service called Trainmaster TV. They publish videos on many different railway themed topics such as model railroading and railfanning.
In the Niagara Region of Ontario, there is an extraordinarily talented model railroader, Lex Parker, who has produced an exquisite model railroad in On3 gauge which is 1/48 scale or 1/4" to the foot. I have visited this layout and it is truly an impressive accomplishment.
Trainmaster TV has published an excellent series of two HD videos on Lex's layout which provides some great footage of the railroad and is interspersed with an excellent interview with him where he explains what drove him to build it and how he did it.
The best news of all is that these videos are provided as free samples to any of you who choose to view them. Below are a few images from the video.
Click here and then click on Go to December 2013 Show - Free Sample to view Part 1 (called Act 1). Be sure to click on Part 2 (Act 2) as well to see it all.
