Telegraph has undergone several “facelifts” since the fall of 2015. First, the original backdrop area was updated, with additional scenery added as well. Geoff Holman, then club president, headed up the project with an assist from Sam Martin. In 2016, Dave Van Wagoner proposed an even more significant upgrade to include a complete covering of open tablespace. In addition, the project added a single set of tracks to the area, leaving it open for any future products.
This structure is a separate piece(s) kit and was built by master builder Richard Hudson. Richard passed away in July 2021 at the age of 80.
Please notice the spectacular attention to detail.
Final placement of the ranger tower. The ranger tower platform was hand built by Dave Van Wagoner.
These are scratch built buildings created by club member George Downer. George has lent his talents to other areas of the club's layout.
Like other buildings on the layout, this particular facility is named after long-time member, Jim Corbett. A Golden Spike winner, Jim passed away in 2015 due to complications from Lou Gehrig's disease.
