Cover April 2021 NMRA Magazine

Congratulations to fellow Western Heritage Division member Carl Kempkes whose 0n30 scale DURANGO & WESTERN layout is featured in the April 2021 NMRA magazine. Not only did Carl's layout get published in the magazine but his layout was also highlighted on the cover!

Geneseo Railway

Farmers Exchange  Lloyd's Oil Co.  Climb to Switch Yard  Hydan Switch Yard

Bob Roegge's Geneseo Railway is a modelers masterpiece!

Bob has expanded his Geneseo Railway into the adjoining room and has added another town/switching area (Farr). Farr has three sidings serving Schramm's Farmers Exchange, Lloyd's Oil Co. and Bates Coal. Pictures show Schramm's and Lloyd's. The line to Farr climbs through some mountainous scenery for which he is in the process of making trees. Bob says he only needs about 100 more! The line ends at a new yard under the stairs so the layout is now point to point.

Abandoned Farm

Farm House  Cattle Pen
