    As this layout is 100 x 300 feet it is literally as big as a football field. Mercifully I will not post all of it.
    Starting off is the main train yard. The control booth can be seen in the top of the photo.
    Photo #2 is the drive in theater. It is always around 1960 in model railroads, at least the buildings and scenery.
    In #3 we are going back in time a bit with a steam locomotive and a doodlebug.
    Wrapping it up is the dinosaur dig.
    Next is the western town.

      This is simply outstanding!! Lots of work and detail went into this. I love that archaeological dig site.

      Amazing display! Hubby loves this stuff, and building his own platform and all that belongs on it for several years now. I think it's great for men to have hobbies when they retire. Thanks for posting.
