Paul Fries’ HO scale model railroad is displayed in the front window of his hobby shop, Red Board Hobbies (2331C Collinsville Rd., Belleville, IL 62221, 618-233-3618). The layout features fall scenery and a small town theme.
In early 2010 Paul modified the town square area adding a tribute to Dee Joseph, a well-known and respected local modeler and businessman who is no longer with us. The new photos are on the first three rows.
