Modeling typical midwestern towns in the 1950s offers modelers a variety of opportunities. In the upper left is a fuel dealer receiving tank cars. Next is a stock pen with stock cars. The freight house and a team track offer a busy switching location. On the opposite side of the main line is a cannery receiving refrigerator cars, a feed mill followed by an elevator receiving box cars. All the industries are switched by the local featuring a Chicago, Peoria & Southern steam locomotive on Bill Navigato's September 1958 era railroad.
