HO SCALE: Allied Manufacturing Company (Single Industry Design)

I just completed this design for a client who wanted a HO-scale layout of a modern single industry using an Inglenook. The space available was a generous 16-inch by 9-feet but the layout had to be self contained without any additional staging tracks or add-ons. Although my client hasn't determined what type of industry he will eventually model, I decided...

HO SCALE: Mountenay Manufacturing Company

This is a HO-scale industrial complex that I just completed for a member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layouts in a 40x50-inch foot print.
