Fort Hanover: A Commissioned Postage Stamp Layout

Building for Someone Else

So, a Postage Stamp Trains collector with whom I've become friends asked me if I could whip up something for him on which to exercise some of his PST collection. Well, sure! Mini- and micro-layouts are my specialty, as now are retro layouts. The plan I developed for him features many of the American style kits Aurora offered back in the day, which as it happens is something I'd wanted to build for myself for quite a long time. Consequently, I've invested quite a bit of extra enthusiasm in the project, and the buyer got much more value for the dollar than he might have otherwise expected.
