Scott Thornton’s Milan Branch

This is rapidly turning into one of my favourite examples of an Achievable Layout. Scott Thornton is modelling the 12-mile Milan Branch of the Iowa Interstate in HO scale. It’s a modern branch, with a nice variety of customers, and Scott is taking a thoughtful approach to bringing it to life.

  1. I couldn’t agree more with you on this one. For a pile of reasons, I’m a fan of this layout. I had been following his thread on MRH but hadn’t realize he’d started a website.

    Off to go check that out.



  2. Thanks for sharing, Trevor. Scott’s blog is well done! I’ve always thought if I get into HO standard gauge, it would be a fun challenge to do a small branch in Proto 87. Seeing his blog has stirred the fires! Someday!
