Construction of the Model Railroader Magazine Railroad at the National Train Show

Photos by Richard Schumacher

Photos of the construction of the St. Louis Central 2001 4’x8′ model railroad layout at the National Train Show. This layout was sponsored by Model Railroader magazine and assembled by Gateway Division NMRA members during the 2001 St. Louis National Train Show. Step-by-step photos were taken with an early-model digital camera and displayed as an ongoing¬†slide-show presentation on a computer at the construction booth. The St. Louis Central 2001 layout was designed by Richard Schumacher and is inspired by scenes and railroads of the St. Louis Area. Read more about this layout. Also see photos of the “second edition” of this layout we built for the Missouri Historical Society.
