The D&SW railroad has existed in five locations as we moved from one home to another. The first two layouts were constructed on a plywood table top whereas the final three layouts were constructed using the L-girder method with hard shell scenery.
All of the layouts used Homosote board as the road bed. All of the cars and most of the structures were built from craftsman kits. Some of the buildings and all of the bridges are scratch built.
The dates for each layout are shown below along with one picture from each location):
1971 - 1973 (8' x 8')
1973-1978 (12' x 8')
1978 - 1985 (12' x 20')
1985-1999 (20' x 20')
