Don Morice’s HO Scale Illinois Central Model Railroad

photos by Don Morice

Don Morice has built a detailed recreation of the Illinois Central Railroad St. Louis Division in Southern Illinois, Carbondale to DuQuoin, of the 1955-1960 (steam to diesel) era. This HO scale model railroad is a walk-in design with access gate and 59-foot double track main loop with a 56-foot branch line. Scenery is 100% complete and the railroad features a Masonite backdrop with building flats, DC cab control using MRC remote walk around throttles, and train order/switch list operations for a crew of five. 90% of the steam locos have sound and are modified to IC style.

    Hello Gateway NMRA,

    I am looking for the city of New Orleans and Panama Limited city fleet in Illinois Central. Do you know where I could get prototype passenger cars of the complete passenger train set of the 1952 era?

    Yours truly,
