Bill Walthers is famous for his scale kits ...... a box of frustration and torment for some ...hours of pleasurable  escapism for others.   Early days Walthers was heavily into prototypical signalling and automatic train control ... late 20's and early 30's .... so "Mr Scale" kit by day .......but at home in a nondescript attic of Milwaukee  was  a fully signaled auto control  STANDARD GAUGE layout .... yes with it's center third rail for all to see!

Check out that control panel ......

Proof we all have skeletons in our closets or attics
