Santiam Division of the Union Pacific Raiload

Check out this video tour of Glenn Wolfe's N scale Santiam Division, featured in the upcoming special issue Great Model Railroads 2021
This ten-minute video tells the factitious but plausible story behind the N scale model of the Santiam Division of the Union Pacific Railroad, featured in Great Model Railroads 2021. The setting is the scenic Santiam pass in western Oregon. The time frame is the mid 1950s. It’s the story of a transcontinental rail line actually attempted in the 1800s. That attempt ultimately failed, but the model version, as you’ll see, is quite successful!
