Ok  Boys and Girls,

If you attended the 23rd  Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver you got a chance too see the R&P in person, If not here's what you missed. !! The layout was featured in the Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette and Garden Railways magazine.

Layout features; The R&P was housed in a 15ft x 15ft building in my backyard with floor to ceiling real rock work (no casting !!!) all scratch-built buildings (no kits !!) several  hundred scratch-built pine trees and Aspen. Bachmann sectional track was used on the indoor section and LGB on the outdoor section. The entire layout was built from start to finish in (2 years) !!!!


Enjoy: Ronnie D.:cb:













































Also here's a little mini video of the R&P in action.!!!! Sorry for the quality it was down loaded from a old floppy disk.
