  • Two short videos of Cliff Coutinhos HOn30

    Cliff Coutinho has had several articles in MR and GMR several years ago and since these articles were published has built into his HO standard gauge Old Colony and South Shore RR a HOn30 module built years ago by Bob Van Gelder of South River model works. Cliff in his early 80s has had some medical issues recently, but was feeling better and invited a few friends to visit and run his layout. He had the HOn30 layout running quite well. Here are two short videos of the HOn30 and one of the HO layout. Again very short, but showing Cliff's great modeling.

    Boy, when you said short, you meant short.

    Nice scenery. Had to stop the video to take in the wonderful work.

      Hi Bernd, Ray many have a short video of Cliff's work, but I have still shots of it if you'd like to see them, I'm sure Ray won't mind me posting them here.

      These aren't the best shots in the world, but here are the first three.

          Ray, thanks for introducing us to Cliff's work, and thanks for those still shots, Louis. Any more shots hanging around? Cliff's layout looks terrific!

            Thanks for posting. Most of those shots were of the HOn30. While that work looks like Cliff's and some may be, most of it was done by Bob Van Gelder. Cliff purchased it from Bob many years ago, but it was the last part of Cliff's layout to be done.

              Ray, I know a lot of it was as is when bought from Bob Van Gelder, but Cliff no less did a great job of incorporating it into his original layout.

              Bruce, Bernd & others, here are a few more.

                    Beautiful shots, Louis.

                    I love Cliff's "This is my railroad" sign. Particularly his reference to mistletoe.

                      Yes very nice pictures. Thanks Louis. Much appreciated.

                      Bruce,

                      I like the sign also. I need to go find some mistletoe.
