This large scale indoor club layout started life as a custom build of a local large-scale collector.
The 8-by-11-foot board had been unused for at least a decade and I immediately knew where this display would be best displayed — at the 7.5” gauge, 1.5” scale live-steam train club that I belong to. Many of its members also collect large-scale equipment.
This large scale indoor club layout resides in the clubhouse where we hold our meetings. I have spent time decorating and making the layout look like a fictional local town. Within the layout, there is a N scale loop, a little homage to our club. Eventually we will open the clubhouse to display the layout as well as some of our collectible live-steam models.
The club is the Southern California Live Steamers in Torrance, Calif.
