N-scale trains – Northeast N-Trak – Big Train Show 2009

Northeast N-Trak member, Bob Pawlak, built two huge modules a few years ago, portraying the Big Bridge Canyons in the Western United States. He has three trains running all at the same time, and has the three mainlines which is required by N-Trak standards running at the top. This is truly an awesome display for the public to see. At one time three railroads crossed at this location. With mergers, only the BNSF now travels through this area today.
