Bon Marche Layout 1949

Photos of the 1949 Bon Marche Layout from the Ray Mohrlang Collection
We start the tour from left to right. Note the two highest levels for HO trains. Although this display started in 1948, the mine in the foreground was added in 1949. The operating bascule bridge was also one of the items added to the display in 1949. Rolling stock and accessories shown here are typical of 1949.
View from side window.  Oil derricks were added in 1950 and their absence in these photos date the layout as 1949. A closer view from the side window. Night shot of the layout
