David and Pam Johnson chat with host Bob Hermann

On July 11, 2004 the MVNS club visited the brand new G Scale layout of Mr. Robert Hermann of Columbia, Illinois. The homestead is beautifully landscaped. A garage has been converted to a train station where tracks go in and out at ground level. There is also a fish pond inside. There is only one set of 10 ga. feeder wires to this entire layout. Brass track is used throughout. There were four trains running all day during our visit, with no derailments.
