James Gronwald’s DRGW Through Castle Country
James models the D&RGW coal hauling in the Soldier Summit area in the 1950-60’s era. The room is a basement room 14 x 20 feet with a dog leg of 13 x 19 feet. He has around 300 feet of double mainline track. This part of the layout is about 80% done and James has done some outstanding hand carved mountain work which you must see. The backdrop scenery paintings by Rob Spangler are spectacular. In May of 2013 James started construction of the second phase of his layout which is the Salt Lake City area with a lot of industrial sidings. This area is about the same size as his first phase. James has also added a lot of scenery and buildings to the town of Green River. Control is Digitrax DCC.
James’s DRGW through Castle Country was the featured layout in the December 2018 NMRA magazine - six pages of photos and text.
