Colorado Railroad Museum Aerial View ...

The following is from Carl Arendt's "Small Layout Scrapbook" website:

COLORADO: MUSEUM PRESENTS A FULL-SIZED 'LINN WESTCOTT PLAN'

Recently, in the Small Layout Design discussion group on Yahoo!, Loren J posted a link to an aerial view of the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado USA (below is the Google Maps view). Loren's comment was, "This 'railroad' could be modeled 1:1." Indeed, one group member commented, "Wow, a prototype that actually looks like a Linn Westcott plan!"

The three-foot gauge (91cm) oval track is 1/3 mile (.5km) around, holding over 100 historic locomotives and cars. The museum also houses the Denver HO Model RR Club's Denver and Western layout. The Denver Garden Railway Society also has a G-scale garden railway on the grounds.
