Lifelong modeler John Elwood has crafted one of the finest HO model railroads in the hobby. His unwavering enthusiasm has aided him in building his version of a Pacific North West themed layout. For over thirty years John has created beautifully detailed towns and cities, populating them with his own scratchbuilt structures as well as many craftsman structure kits. His layout is home to no less than a dozen kits from Fine Scale Miniatures. In addition to his super detailed structures, the Olympic & Puget Sound Railway is home to a bustling waterfront; a showcase for John’s model ship building skills. His passion for maritime scenes is evident in his scratchbuilt steam ship Islander and a boat house with a completely detailed and illuminated interior. His scenery dramatically conveys the Pacific North West locale by way of rolling mountains and hills, and large wooden trestles.
