About

Hi, I have decided to build an N Scale layout based on the Southern Pacific railroad in Casa Grande, AZ. I have (within the last 5 years) moved to Casa Grande and I am a lifetime fan of the SP.  After moving out here, I have grown fond of the old Sunset Route, and since I grew up during the 1980’s, I have decided to model the feel of Casa Grande in the early to mid 80’s. I have started building a layout on a very tight budget, and it has been fun so far.

  1. Send me your e-mail and I’ll send you the black and white photos of the Casa Grande depot that I have filed. I have color, too, but the slides haven’t been converted yet. My field notes on the depot will have to dug out of a 10 x 10′ storage room-they’re in there somewhere, so please be patient. Making drawings out of the notes would be a good project, as the notes were quite detailed. I measured doors, windows, etc., not just the length of the depot. This was done a year or two before it burned down. Sad to see it go.

  2. What state are you located in? I’m curious about the temperature and location of your layout. Well more if N scale can hold up to the elements. I was thinking about building a garage layout.. (Only place i was allotted space..hahaha) I’m unsure about Nscale and the Texas heat….
