Model Railroading With John Allen
Here is the story of John Allen's spectacular HO scale Gorre & Daphetid (pronounced "Gory and Defeated") Railroad, a wonderful miniature world complete with towering mountain ranges, awesome chasms spanned by awesome bridges, great smoky cities, and a thousand smaller details. The G.D. Line was a model railroad the likes of which had never been seen before. John Allen was one of the premier model railroaders of all time, a man who devoted the last 20 years of his life almost exclusively to the hobby. In approaching model railroading as more than just a pastime, he elevated it to the status of an art. This book, published almost a decade after Allen's death, is a record and celebration of his life's work. 144 pages.
