Jack Burgess' Yosemite Valley Railway

Watch this train run on this 1939-themed layout

Some of you may know of a certain Master Model Railroader by the name of Jack Burgess. If you do, you will almost certainly recognize the layout in this video. Jack models the Yosemite Valley Ry. in August of 1939, and has been working very hard at matching every detail to its prototype, right down to the specific car numbers that have traveled the road! Please enjoy this video of one of the best prototype model railroads!
