Note: I have nothing to gain by posting this from CMR models...it's just a big kit; too big for me. Although, after consideration; I don't think the kit is that expensive for what you get.

It's big, but I can't imagine a layout I've ever seen where it would fit in with the neighborhood. I probably need to 'get out more'.

The Tech Model Railroad Club has a through passenger terminal I designed and did a lot of the construction for. It's just about right for CMR's 'City Station and Concourse', but it's had it's own for many years.

John, that modeler did a fantastic job of detailing, lighting & assembling that modern looking structure!
I think it would look very cool on a modern urban layout setting.

I have seen skyscrapers on club layouts but never on a home layout. I know a guy in Illinois, I think, who is doing his version of downtown Chicago in the 70ís but in N scale.

I have previously watched the attached you tube video from John by Luke Towan on this build. IMO he is by far the best modeler and video guy on you tube. He is who I learned how to make my wire armatures trees from. No layout though. He is now a you tube celebrity who started getting his following when he used to post on the MRH forums.

It would be worth building, just to build it...
Modeling is modeling,

I've published a modeler's build of 30th St. station and that's a pretty good sized model....in O scale nonetheless.

But, I have in the wings in the formulation stages a modeler with a layout int he making that includes a fully operational O scale model of BB-64, the Wisconsin. Somewhere ~18'......

I'm rather looking forward to making it the centerfold!


In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

Fully Operational, oil burning boilers, steam turbines, 16" RADAR directed turrets, cruise missile launchers, and 4 ~ 18' bronze props, with a crew of 1900+ LP. I'd love to see it.
