HO scale Gogebic Iron Range model railroad

Check out this video posted by a fellow model railroader
Hans J. Schlegel's HO scale model railroad is based on the Gogebic Iron Range of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan in the 1950s to 1960s. The layout features iron mines, ore trains, steam, and diesel. The video is 4-years old and shows about half of what is now completed. Today, scenery is 90 percent complete and features three prototype iron mines scratchbuilt from photos and drawings.
