Get ready for an exciting Saturday of layout tours,
June 30th, 2018
Layout Tour #1
Russ Ferre’s Lasalle Central
1631 West Rundquist Dr. (7575 South) West Jordan, Utah
10 am – 2 pm
Russ’ layout is double deck built around the walls with a center peninsula. He has cleverly found ways to route the track into just about every nook and cranny in his basement so that he doesn’t need a helix to join the two levels. He has many kitbashed buildings to fit the spaces available.
Layout Tour #2
Bob and Karin Gerald’s Milwaukee Road, Utah Division
7624 Calendula Lane West Jordan, Utah
10 am – 5 pm
Bob and Karin Gerald’s Milwaukee Road is a multilevel N scale layout recreating the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad’s mainline through Northern Idaho in 1955. All the locations on the layout are actual stations on the line, but only St. Maries and Avery are reasonable recreations of the locations with some selective compression. All the other locations have had many industries added to enhance the play value during operating sessions. The layout occupies two rooms, the main room is 17 by 12 feet and the other is 11 by 12. The scenery is 75% complete with over 2 thousand homemade pine trees filling the mountain sides. There is a fully functional ABS signal system controlled by BOD-8 detectors and a homemade signal driver board.
Layout Tour #3
Neil Blosch G Scale Layout
7711 Pheasant Wood Dr. Cottonwood Hts. Sandy, Utah
3:30 pm – 6 pm

Neil’s layout is housed in a purpose built building approximately 30 ft. by 100 ft. The layout has two loops at different levels with a ramp track that joins the two loops together. The layout has many well detailed buildings with complete interiors as well as other detailed scenery. One highlight of the layout is very large suspension bridge. The rolling stock includes two Big Boy locomotives as well as other big steam and diesel engines.
