The Green Bay & Western of the 1960s is being brought to life in HO scale near Denver, Colorado.

Bob Wandel has been a fan of the Green Bay & Western since it was covered in the January 1968 Railroad Model Craftsman, and now he is turning his enthusiasm for the railroad into a 1960s-era model of the GBW's Kewaunee Division... with a little of the C&NW in Green Bay added for variety.

Instead of modeling the uphill grade to Summit along Baird's Creek, Bob is using a helix to represent the grade and provide extra space for other parts of his empire.

The photo below shows the completed benchwork for the Kewaunee Division. New Franken and the helix are behind the Masonite of the left peninsula; Luxemburg is the flat area facing the viewer on the left peninsula. Casco Jct. is on the left side of the right peninsula, with the Ah & W and GBW subroadbed on the right.

Go here for a fall 2006 update on Bob's layout.
