Layouts That Are No Longer a Part of OS Omaha

D&RGW Alamosa Division - David Hunt
Based on D&RGW operations in the San Luis Valley of Colorado. Dave's layout featured extensive operations in the dual gauge Alamosa yard as well as local work on both standard gauge and narrow gauge lines.

Dave took his layout down (with much help from his friends!) before moving to a new home in December, 2013. The new layout is now under construction, but progress has not been fast enough for anyone's satisfaction.

Illinois Terminal in Alton, Illinois - Bob Schramm
The completed portion of the layout modeled the NYC/GM&O joint trackage in the area of Woodriver and East Alton, Illinois around 1965. The ITC portion of the layout was never constructed.

Sadly, Bob passed away in 2018 and was never able to complete his "final" layout.

Montana & Colorado Southern - Steve Rodie
This layout models a freelanced prototypical Northern Pacific subsidiary in Idaho and Montana. D&RGW trackage rights trains make appearances and helpers are often required in the mountainous terrain.

The new M&CS is on the way to being a much larger version of this previous layout.

Rock Island - Dan Munson
The Rock in Southeast Iowa in the late 1960s. Mainline, branch operations, and a large yard make this an ideal layout for anyone's taste.

The Rock Island was taken down when Dan moved away from Omaha in 2012.

St. Joseph Terminal - Don Wetmore
This extensively researched railroad is based on prototype operations in and around St. Joseph, MO in 1960. Railroads featured include the CB&Q, AT&SF, RI, MP, CGW, UP, Union Terminal (MP), St. Joseph Belt (MP) and the St. Joseph Terminal (UP & AT&SF).

Don moved to Florida after retiring from UP. We look forward to visiting the St. Joe Terminal in its new home someday.

Texas and Central - Charles Fennen
Based on the SP/T&NO Llano & Austin branches in the late 50s. Joint trackage operations with the Katy and interchange traffic with the MoPac and GC&SF are also featured.

Charles dismantled his layout shortly after OS Omaha 2011 and has developed an interest in modeling in 1 1/2" gauge.
