I've started on the main town of my layout and have started getting the structures built and been playing around with the placement. Tiffany's Drugs is named after my grandmother's maiden name. My grandmother grew up in an old deserted mining town in the mountains of Utah called Mammoth. I've chosen to model my Mammoth & Oquirrh layout based on a fictitious shortline that was a spur on the old D&RGW through the mining regions of Utah. (Footnote: Last month's Narrow Gauge Gazette ran an article that focused on an old mining short line in Utah at the turn of the century. The area that was discussed in that article is the same area I am modeling) The town will (hopefully) have a resemblance to the town of Sheridan that Malcolm Furlow (my model railroading idol) built for his HO Denver & Rio Chama RR. I'll keep you aprised of the progress.
