Legendary HO Scale work : The Franklin & South Manchester Railroad

Not knowing what to assume, I was perfectly
floored when I walked up the narrow staircase and through the door covered in railroad signs. The HO scale railroad does not take up much space square-footage wise, but the level of additional detail is staggering. Every inch of the diorama, set in a depression era New England, drips with attention to additional detail.

I was told to go check out the Franklin & South Manchester Railroad in nearby Peabody, Massachusetts, when giving a clinic on 3D printing at the Okay Scale Model Train Expo last week (additional of which

The well weathered, HO scale kits have astonishing realism. Every figure–and there must be thousands of them–is occupied engaging in their lives, working, playing or relaxing. They appear to be interacting and as I appeared nearer, I started to find rad little narratives. The additional time I spent wandering the layout, the additional I noticed clever little additional details, humorous characters and Easter eggs (yes, dyed Easter eggs). George has artistic touches sprinkled throughout his railroad, a few for fun and a few deeply very own.

After seeing the Franklin & South Manchester Railroad, I completely feel the passion which
our community has for version railroading. This work is a lifetime achievement. Check out the video at a lower place for a short interview with George Sellios and a appear at the full railroad set-up.
