Is anyone familiar with John Olsen's Jerome and Southwestern layout of the 1980's? That was THE layout that turned me on to model railroading when I was a kid. I have a book published by Kambalch that shows the whoel thing from start to finish. Olsen's talent was really displayed with that layout. I don't think it would be that difficult to recreate now with all the good materials and stuff that are on the market. Plus, it's only 4x8 with a 2x6 extension so it would not be that bad on space.
