WOW!! , thank you so so much Alan. This will definitely help us and also promote the hobby so much!!! Children, Families & Adults is what it's all about!!!

Thank you to the whole Elesh family for becoming sponsors!  I really enjoyed my time at the Corner Field layout and store, and hope to see the expanded layout soon!  Anyone on the Forum who is traveling through Northeast Ohio should try to pay a visit.

 Thank you Alan again for working with another great sponsor!!

It's wonderful of joining the O Gauge Forum. Looking forward to meet and talk to other hobbyists. Myself, I've been in this hobby for 50 years +. And I've created with my family a great place to visit, with your family and fellow hobbyists. The layout is the largest family owned in the country at this time. The museum layout size 31' x 145'. We are looking forward for everybody to see and help the hobby to grow. Especially the young people of the world. There is nothing like having a train and sharing it.

Our store reflects around postwar and used trains. I am a Lionel & MTH authorized dealer. So in the future, we will be posting items on our site.

Arnold, It is certainly amazing and stunning!  The photograph doesn't even come close to showing how detailed it is!!  The roster of locomotives and rolling stock is fantastic as you can partly tell surrounding the turntable.  Tom Jr. pays attention to where the visitors are to give them the best action.

Oh, I don't think this has been mentioned.  There are scads of operating accessories with push buttons for the kids and adults alike to activate for added interest.

I counted 34 turntable tracks and maybe more!  WOW!  You guys are THE WINNER!!   How do you access the turntable tracks?  Does your turntable and pit hinge down?  Oh yes, and WELCOME TO OUR FORUM!

Hi Jim. Actually, there are 43 tracks. And they all work. Stop by sometime and check us out. I think you'll be impressed.

Tom Elesh Sr.

Hi Tom,

It's definitely on my "to do" list.  I am still intrigued by the fact that access to the turntable tracks looks impossible unless you've hinged your entire turntable and pit, allowing it to swing down so that human help can come up in the middle to get to the tracks for assisting with derails, etc.  Is that how you do it?  I'm curious because that is how I did my own large turntable some years back.

Jim, nice to hear from you. If you closely, there is a red brick building next to the roundhouse. The access hole is right there. It lifts up. Hope that helps. Tom.

I visited the Corner Field layout a couple of weeks ago, and very much enjoyed my visit with the family at this family-operated attraction. We'll be featuring this layout in the magazine in the future, just as soon as the expanded section is complete and "ready for prime time" as the old saying goes. Great othave them aboard as an andveriser and sponsor!
