Railroad Empire Re-Creation
Clay Buckage is currently engaged in creating a reproduction of this layout that was featured in the American Flyer catalogs of the early post war era, 1946-1949.
In both 3 rail and 2 rail configurations, this layout was the major public display at the Gilbert Hall of Science in New York from the early 1940's to the early 1950's. The rolling stock items you see in these photos are what you would have seen in 1946.
