Build a dream Model Railroad

So you want to Build a Dream Model Railroad by Bill Decker

Eight years into building his own dream model railroad, the SP Cascade Line Cascade line, Bill has had time to reflect on what goes into designing and building a basement-filler. His reflections include alternative, valid choices to his own. Lessons learned will be discussed as well. This presentation is intended to promote thinking about the many layout choices to design and build what most suits the individual modeler.

Biography Bill has been a lifetime modeler of the Southern Pacific with excursions into other western railroads. With retirement came a return to his native Oregon and brought the real estate and time to tackle a basement-filling dream layout. Bill's SP Cascade Line began construction in 2012 and has now seen over forty formal operating sessions over the completed mainline.
