Paul Fries’ Red Board Hobbies Model Railroad

photos by Richard Schumacher

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.
