Would someone know what became of Paul's layout? Having been absent from Mrr'ng for a good while I have not kept up with things or seen any publications so was wondering if it still exists? I was very sad to hear Paul had passed away as he was a friend and great guy.

Roger Nulton from the S-scale Monon, on June 17th 2015 had this to say;
The 2015 Sn3 Symposium was the last time for modelers to view the late Paul Scoles model railroad. He had passed a few months prior and his widow was kind enough to keep the layout open for one last show case of the layout. Quite a gesture to keep the layout and host all of us in the home. The local modelers ran a few trains and talked to all of us who came to visit each day.
The free-lanced Sn3 layout represents a 1895-1900 railroad running inland from the Northern California coast. It has been well published in many model railroad magazines including NG&SLG, RMC, and MR and MRP (probably more). Additionally Paul created and sold DVD's about his scenery techniques and operations on the railroad.
Itís my understanding that the layout has now come down and been auctioned off in some way shape or form. I know one person who was very appreciative to acquire two of his locomotives and some rolling stock to get started on his own freelanced railroad!

Sigh... I really wanted to meet Paul and see his layout. I was very saddened to hear of his passing a couple years ago.


Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)
