Great Model Railroads By Allen Keller Vol. # 7


Volume 7 - Harry Clark's Indian Creek Valley Railroad
Harry Clark's Indian Creek Valley Railroad is one of the most incredibly built model railroads you'll ever see. The layout is 22 feet deep with fabulous panoramic views and clearly shows the craftsmanship and artistry of its builder. The HO railroad features mountain scenery with 1,000s of inexpensive, scratchbuilt trees that Harry will show you how to make.

Harry will also demonstrate for you some of the scratchbuilding structure techniques he's developed after 50 years as a carpenter. His rock casting method is on a grand scale, huge molds that cover 6 square feet at a time.

You'll tour the 22x50 foot Indian Creek Valley with doubleheaded steam. You'll go on-board to experience scenic vistas that most of us can only dream of having.

The 15 year old Indian Creek combines backwoods logging with a Class 1 B&O 3 track main. The division point yard is over 40 feet long. In fact everything on this layout is big-from the articulated EM-1s to the Cass sawmill with real water in the log pond.

Harry models the peak years of railroading 1940-1955 with long, long trains gliding gracefully through broad curves and up 2% mountainous grades. Harry has molded all these elements into a truly Great Model Railroad.
