We continue to follow the dismantling of Steve Strebel’s “O” scale (On3 – On30) layout, the Rio Grande and Pacific. Fearing for the future of what is one of the worlds best model railroads, he is breaking it up into dioramas.
After the sudden death of Al Badham, Steve is having problems keeping up with the work needed on the railroad. He now has a new hip and a new lease on life! AND is planning a NEW LAYOUT! The goal being to build a smaller, better (really) and easy to maintain model railroad.
His plan is to remove everything and build smaller dioramas that he plans to give away to friends and family. This way the “layout” can live on for centuries. This process may take a year or more, but we will cover it here as it goes forward.
This week Steve is having a few people over to buy buildings and bridges and whatnot. And moving forward on several more dioramas.
