We stayed with my oldest son Jerry Jr who lives 5 miles from the trains show location so it worked out very well in seeing the kids again. In part of his garage is this magnificent N scale layout that he and his son Hudson work on.
The neat part of the layout are the structures that are scratchbuilt with parts and supplies from other kits or stock materials.
Jerry models in N scale and does European modeling that is the best I ever saw.
I really love the way individual floors are lit with furniture and people in attendance
There's Jerry in the background of his masterpiece. Maritime modeling is also included.
Looking down main street gives you the impression that it is a real city.
