Around 15 years ago at the GATS, there was a modular layout that had downtown Fort Wayne. They had the elevated NKP modeled. Don't recall who it was. A club I thought.

Mike Crosby of Indianapolis, has a great HO scale diorama of PRR's Winter St. coaling tower, and he's working on a Mike diorama. His work is very detailed. He brings them to the railroad celebrations at Baker St. in Feb.

Mike mentioned that an HO scale model of PRR's Winter St. roundhouse and immediate yards would require something like 12x12 ft.

I don't know where you could put an HO model of everything in Ft. Wayne, or even an N scale model. Anyone have a large building they can donate?
