Steve Strebel’s Rio Grand & Pacific

August 12, 2012

Steve and his support group, The “O” Scale Guys, have spent more than 25 years building the 1930s era “O” scale RP&G in the attic of Steve’s home. The RP&G layout measures 18 by 36 feet and features over 140 scratch-built structures, many hundreds of feet of hand-laid track on hand-cut ties, a dozen bridges and trestles and hand-painted backdrops. Supported by spectacular scenery, the structures are the primary features on the layout. There are a dozen mines as well as several mills and town sites. The mine lower levels have been completed and two new mines have been added to the layout.
Steve’s museum-quality layout was featured in Jan/Feb 2011 and Jul/Aug 2011 issues of the “Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette.”
