I visited Ralph Deblasi’s Lehigh Valley model railroad. It’s a HO scale layout set in the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. It is a beautiful railroad built for operations, but also the scenery has captured the look and feel of the Lehigh Gorge perfectly. The scenery is about 70% complete. Ralph also has a nice CTC machine for the dipatcher to work from. It is set in his “old” formal livingroom. Let’s just say his wife is very supportive, and from what I heard an excellent cook.
It was great meeting Ralp in person and a real pleasure to have him share his layout.
