BC&G LAYOUT by Phil Bonzon, MMR*
is building a 20' 4" X 15' 2" HO scale layout representing the BC&G
and ERC&L, along with the B&O, in the late 1950's-early 1960's era. Phil
has graciously agreed to share his
project with us all via this website! Thanks, Phil! We'll eagerly watch the progress of this wonderful project! To see photos of each town on Phil's layout, click on the town names on the Navigation Bar
Below is a beautiful drawing of the layout plan that Phil
has created. Below that, in his
own words, is Phil
's modeling concept and then several photos of completed portions of the layout. Phil has indicated he'd be glad to hear from anyone who would like to exchange information with him at PGBonzon@aol.com.
