We are still at the Color Country Model Railroad Club in Saint George Utah for their November open house. This week we are visiting David Merrill’s HO-scale railroad.
The highly detailed model railroad features western scenes and scratch-built and craftsman structures. AND a fantastic photo backdrop of western mountains.
One area depicts Utah’s Park City, where the original three-foot gauge Utah Eastern, later the dual gauge and then standard gauge Denver and Rio Grande Western, met the standard gauge Union Pacific. The best-known structure was the Silver King Coalition Mines tipple right in Park City. The building stood for almost one hundred years before it burned. But to this day it is the symbol of Park City and is featured as the city logo. It has been scratch-built in every scale, and the one here is among the best! WOW!
