RR Xing

This HO scale model railroad was inspired by the Rocky Mountain railroads of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The SJSRR or "The Silver San Juan" (That nick-name is certainly not original with us but more commonly associated with the Rio Grande Southern.) is a "freelance" layout based on what little RR and prototype knowledge the builder has at any given time. The time period is 1949 and the SJSRR serves regional mining and lumber industries and interchanges with the D&RGW which is the source of many of the necessities of life and commerce for the San Juan area.

The main purpose of this model railroad, other than generating enough revenue to keep the trains rolling, is to create a pleasing "diorama" of the Rockies in the San Juan area and to have fun in the process.

The layout is only 6' X 17' and is a sort of "dog bone" configuration with two end modules connected by two 4-1/2' X 1-1/2' modules.
