Durango & Western - Carl Kempkes
Carl has recreated General Palmer's vision of a hard working narrow gauge railroad in the San Juan Range. The year is now 1942 and increased traffic demands supporting the war effort push the limits of the vintage C and K class locomotives moving freight and passenger traffic through the mountain grades and scenic passes. Operations include switching or mainline running.

Geneseo Railway - Bob Roegge
A fictional backwoods railway serving three small rural towns in 1927. Featuring light industrial equipment running on 18" narrow gauge track, this 1/24th scale railroad is as laid back as the backwoods location would suggest. Hand laid track, scratchbuilt equipment and structures, and outstanding scenery make this layout stand out.

Iowa Interstate's West End - Joe Atkinson
The Iowa Interstate's West End, a nearly track-for-track recreation of the railroad from Atlantic to Council Bluffs, Iowa, provides a setting for realistic, yet relaxed operation that'll give the two-man crews a taste of a day in the life of their prototype counterparts. Using actual IAIS track warrant forms and switch lists, you'll experience what it was like to work for a slow-paced regional railroad in May of 2005...without all the heat, mosquitos, and walking. Also includes Union Pacific trackage rights trains and detours.
