A lot of us are diehard modelers, but how many of us are lucky enough to boast two model railroads in our home? Tom Baughman certainly can!
A massive HO scale shelf layout with a helix has taken up Tom's entire basement since 1999, and in his office is a unique N scale layout built into a coffee table. He primarily models the steam-to-diesel transition era of the 1950's and 1960's, and while he collects from all roads, the lion's share of his fleet in both scales is from the Nickel Plate Road, which he blames on his father who worked there during the transition era. Both layouts are decked out with bucolic fall foliage scenery, a number of custom-made buildings, hundreds of LED lights, and much more.
In this video, we'll tour through both of these layouts with the empire builder himself as our guide! Hope you enjoy!
