Dick Kitz's Newton Creek Railroad

Check out scenes on this model railroad layout
Dick Kitz's Newton Creek Railroad was started in 1970 and features many scratchbuilt and kitbashed structures.
Dick Kitz started this layout in 1970. It has been moved once to the present site. The primary railroad is Union Pacific, but he also has Southern Pacific. The railroad scenery is Colorado-based with narrow, as well as standard gauge. It's in HO and HOn3, DCC. Most of the rail is hand-laid, although the newer portions have Peco switches. All the mountains are made of plaster, and the rock molds used were all made by hand. There are several scratchbuilt buildings and many kitbashed ones. Most of the trees are made by hand (120).
