Model Railroader magazine's editor Neil Besougloff introduces you to the MR staff's Red Oak project layout. The 3 x 7-foot N scale model railroad is built on a hollow-core door and models the Burlington Route through Red Oak, Iowa, in the 1960s. Neil will show you some of the locomotives, trains, and structure kits to be included on the layout. Meanwhile, MR Video Plus producer David Popp is busy in the workshop building benchwork for the model railroad.
