Tall Pine Lumber Company Chuck Lind’s O/On3 model railroad near Houston, Texas
This model railroad is built in 1/48 O scale and features both Standard and Narrow Gauge lines, set in the 1930’s and 1940’s. A double deck freelanced west coast logging railroad. The upper On3 level loosely follows the West Side Lumber Company with lots of Shays at work and the West Side River Bridge, a 6’ scratch built bridge. The lower level is O Standard gauge following the Sierra Railroad out of Jamestown. The train room is 30ft x 40ft in size, and is located in a separate building (which looks like a railroad station). The benchwork is complete with the lower level and the peninsula being stud wall benchwork and the upper level cantilevered out from the studs. Scenery is progressing nicely, with over 2200 lbs. of plaster used so far completing most of the upper level narrow gauge scenery. Many award winning models from the previous layout were saved and are being used on this layout along with many new structures.
