This is one of the Western themed layouts that really rocks. It captures a spirit and time in our Country where the mighty Santa Fe and Union Pacific converged to enter the massive Los Angeles area from the high desert. Ted has been able to capture the feel of Devore, San Bernardino, Summit, Victorville and more. His design and scenery captures completely how the area looked. Now it's so modern with I-15 and the modern three rail main lines with welded sections on concrete ties. This is one of my favorites.
This is the shot that appeared on the cover of Great Model Railroads 2005. San Bernardino Yard. Wow this kind of looks like David Barrow's Cat Mountain and Santa Fe with the look of the desert, backdrop and shadowbox display style. The layout has been featured in Model Railroader and in Great Model Railroads from Kalmbach. The 2005 Great Model Railroads to be exact.
