Model railroad experts with exceptional layouts commonly serve as influencers for the hobby. For example, Mike Burgett has dedicated many hours, skill and hard work to the Chesapeake & Ohio layout and he graciously shares it with the model railroading community. Many modelers seek help and guidance from well-known experts to improve their skills. Experts themselves, like Mike, find inspiration and motivation from many different outlets and it can be interesting to learn more about their muse. With the help of Allen Keller, we gain some insight into Mike’s inspirations for the Chesapeake & Ohio layout and his reasons behind a few specific operational decisions.
