This is a member's layout; one of a number expertly created over the years by our member Alan Hancock.

This is an N Gauge layout with a small Nn3 section. It depicts an area in the semi-desert of South Western USA at the period when steam had just been eliminated and long distance passenger traffic was declining on the face of the new jet airliners and the recently approved Interstate Highways program.
