Chuck Ellis’ Great Northwestern & Pacific
« on: September 20, 2017, 12:32:58 AM »
I've got 100's of pictures of Chucks layout taken over the years and thought I'd share some here.  Chucks Great Northwestern & Pacific RR was leatured on an Alan Keller DVD (#52?).  He's got dozens and dozens of FSM kits in which more than half are scratch built.  He an incredible modeler.   The layout has some dust bat as we all know, cleaning can be tough as we get older.  This layout is YUGE!!  No doubt he'll have the layout in tip top shape for the Lone Star Region Convention in Austin next summer.

Here you go.......

Leo,

Thanks for sharing this layout with us. I have Allen's video and it really shows how Chuck is an excellent modeler.

Leo & Lorrie,
           Thanks for sharing the great pics.  I too (like so many other railroad nuts) have the whole collection of Allen's video/dvd's.  Yes he is an awesome modeler.  Just like you two.  Thanx Thom...

Great layout and pictures - thanks for sharing them with us. I have the George Keller video and have watched it many times for inspiration. There are sure some great modelers in Texas. ;)  We need to have another Narrow Gauge Convention there.
