Check out this gallery of bonus photos from Gary Hoover's HO scale model train layout
Gary Hoover models the Norfolk & Western Ry. in the late 1950s through Virginia and West Virginia. Many of the scenes on his 24 x 49 foot model railroad are inspired by the famed railroad photographer, O. Winston Link. Gary's model train layout is also the cover story of the April 2020 Model Railroader. Enjoy this bonus gallery of additional trackside photos along the N&W!
