It's on the 3rd floor of an old store at 7th and ??? (the main e-w drag). it's on the sw corner. The first floor storefront is abandoned. Enter the stairway off 7th st. There is over 1000' of HO track. C&O and WM (coal/freight) theme. To say this is a HUGE club layout is an understatement. It covers an entire floor of an old apartment building, presently encompassing 3-4 entire apartments. Will take considerable time to simply see it all. A fantastic layout!
