Today I’m in Chicago IL on 8-5-23.
I’m sharing the Route 66 Lionel Model
The layout started in 2002 and was inspired by model trains John remembers around his Christmas tree as a child. Also his family history includes his Grandfather John T. Ruh who worked as a Bartender for the Union Pacific
John and Mike Erzen are with me today. Mike is a Chicago area Artist and he’s designed and build every area on the layout to represent a place on Route 66 with amazingly great detail. The engines, cars, scenery on the layout are of the highest quality, and many items are custom and hand built.
This is just a wonderful experience to view.
