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
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.
Pueblo Terminal Railroad - Bob Finkenbiner
Based on the railroad operations in and around Pueblo, Colorado in 1953. A few sound locomotives ran the road,
as diesel engines and late steam carried the load. This was a bridge railroad transporting commodities across
the nation, with each road dropping interchange traffic, occasionally serving the industries around Pueblo and
feeding vast quantities of coal, iron ore, and limestone into CFI. Loads of steel products flow from the mills
in all directions.
Portland Terminal - Pete Vos
This freelanced apartment layout focuses on industry switching in the Portland, Oregon area. Although Pete's
layout is still in operation, it won't be participating in OSOmaha 2023.
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.
