23:21 - May 2016 Act III - Rick Norris’ Rio Grande Southern (2016)

Since its creation, the Rio Grande Southern railway struggled to be successful.  The railroad survived far longer than anyone expected and it has become a legend in the eyes of modelers.  On30 modeler Rick Norris identifies with the “can-do” attitude of the people who built it with his rendition of this famous rail line.

What a wonderful story. We have hobbies to relax, and to recharge so we can deal with the rest of our lives. And this really comes through in this layout tour. I really enjoyed Rick's layout and the few shots of the RC airplanes were most impressive, too!

Thanks for sharing his story.

PS: Nice "Deadwood-y" soundtrack too: Now I have to go open a can of peaches.
