The Rocky Mountain Central (HO) and the Colorado Pacific (HOn3) are based on the D&RGW and the Colorado Southern in the mid 50s. Steam is still the primary motive power (most with sound). The layout features two large yards, a dual gauge interchange, logging operations, mountains that extend to the floor, laser etched control panels, and a unique benchwork design that allows easy access to under layout work.
