• Rick Lull – Richmond Terminal. Rick’s HO-scale Richmond Terminal is based on the RF&P prototype from the wye at Acca to the Quantico area. It is a shelf style, multiple deck railroad with an almost 10-scale-mile main line that takes up the bulk of a large basement. When completed, the railroad will be fully signaled and CTC dispatched.
• Mike Pulaski – Mohawk & Hudson. Mike notes that this is the second version of this layout. Mike started this version in January 2017. This is a proto-freelanced layout set as a 1990's era regional, running from Montreal to Oak Island, New Jersey. The layout is set in central New York state and is a double-deck design. There is scenery on about 60% of the layout. Mike’s layout
