    We were on vacation and happened by Junita Shop on family day. We took the tour and took lots of pictures and we were directed to the old headquarters building. Next to it is the Service Club building where they had a lot of layouts set up. Anyway these are in glass fronted boxes. I didn't see any run but I was impressed with his work. I got the guys name, but lost it. If anyone knows who he is give him credit.

    I noticed the name "East Gotham" on the edge of the layout and did a Google search and found thishttp://hometown.aol.com/tractionfan/index.htm site:

    I haven't spent any time on the site, but it appears to have been built by Fred Miller and was in the Nov 2002 MR.
