My Album
On Saturday April 22, 2017, the Golden Spike Train Club of Utah hosted an open house and invited Hostler Model Rail Club members to bring their trains and run on the club’s amazing layout. It is in the basement of a former hot springs spa on the north edge of Salt Lake City. The building has been used as a children’s museum. The club’s layout is located in the basement of the building. You’ll follow my train of 3 GP9’s and a string of grain hoppers as it winds it way up to the summit of a 5 foot mountain through tunnels and across bridges. There’s areas still being worked on but many areas are finely detailed with rocks trees and other structural elements.
