Ron Schlueter’s HO scale San Jose Southern is based on the 1950s Denver & Rio Grande Western at Tennessee Pass, Colorado. The layout uses a linear walk in with lower level staging design and Digitrax DCC control, features 145-feet of mainline with a 3% grade, code 83 rail, and a 30″ minimum radius, and 140-feet of hand painted aluminum siding backdrop.
