'Port Caribou R.R. & Western Navigation' by Dick Patterson.
It was featured in Nov 1997 Model Railroader...
A 16 x 16 1/2 island type HOn3 layout,
several loops intermeshed with each other, "European style".
Great scenery, working drawbridge, real DEEP water in the harbor,
and a paddlewheel ferry that actually moved in and out of it.
Have scanned the article, but think I can't post it here,
anybody interested give me his email address.
Dick also built the "Dolly Varden" layout.
A strange concept where one looks in a gorge,
with tracks coming out of the sheer walls,
and crossing the abyss...
However these are several unconnected loops,
so no operation that makes sense is possible...
only optical illusion.
I understand Dick went to the Great Roundhouse long ago.
I am afraid the layouts are gone too.
