Peter Youngblood, MMR's Santa Fe Railway Colorado & Albuquerque Division

It is 1967 and Santa Fe’s east-west main line still moves freight and first class passenger name trains from Chicago to Los Angeles over Raton Pass and across Canyon Diablo. Construction of this large layout is in the early stages with much of the main line sidings, branch line and point-to-point D&RGW narrow gauge “Chili Line” interchange still to be built. An interesting visit for those starting to build ambitious layouts. 

Peter's layout is not on the Pilgrimage so this is a rare opportunity to see this beautiful scenic layout.
