Gary Hoover models the Norfolk & Western Ry. in the late 1950s through Virginia and West Virginia. Many of the scenes on his 24 x 49 foot model railroad are inspired by the famed railroad photographer, O. Winston Link. Gary’s model train layout is also the cover story of the April 2020 Model Railroader. Enjoy this bonus gallery of additional trackside photos along the N&W!

At Blue Ridge, Va., westbound passenger traffic emerges from a tunnel just as an eastbound coal drag caboose enters. The signals were scratch built using Oregon Rail Supply heads and yellow LEDs.

  1. Once again Gary has set the bar very high with his layout and his photography. I remember being awestruck with his Santa Fe layout prior to this one and was impressed with the research he had done and how all the little correct details came together. His N&W work looks every bit as well researched and certain scenes in the photos take me back to O. Winston Link’s photos.
    It just doesn’t get any better. Excellent work Gary!

  2. I’m unable to view the gallery, other than first picture, on my laptop running windows 10 or on my iPad. Website needs a lot of work!
