About

My name is Marshall Stull and I have been involved in Model Railroading since the 1970’s.

Until 2009 I was the lone wolf reading, planning, building but not sharing. I had no idea what I was missing. After being exposed to the works of Carl ArendtProf Klyzlr and many others especially on the small layout design yahoo group, my idea of model railroading will never be the same.

I am also a member of the SE-Michigan Free-mo Group. The free-mo standard allows you to build small very detailed modules that become part of a larger layout meant for prototypical operation. Free-mo is not just a display for going round in circles.

I am having so much fun now sharing and doing new things, I decided to share my experiences.

Thanks for looking in!!

  1. Just found your site, very enjoyable! The Quincy Smelter plan is nothing short of spectacular! Have you worked on it since the page was posted? Looking forward to exploring the site and picking up some ideas!

  2. Are you still doing things with model railroading?
    I’m just taking it up since I became disabled and need a hobby.
    I Live in Garden City but worked down at Junction and Cecil near the John Kronk yard/line for many years.
    I like the info you have on many of those old lines around the State.

    • Glad you like the articles! I do lots of model railroading. I have five layouts/projects in progress. I just re-joined the NMRA and will be attending the NCR Div 6 meetings at the Civic Center Senior Center in Livonia.

      Small layouts are great for people who have mobility issues. No need to crawl under or lift heavy sections.

      if you have stories about the old lines, I would like to hear them.

    • Thanks! Been very busy with work latly so i am behind on my posts. Always good to hear appreciation.

      That is a nice little facility! 1,726 feet total length. That would be 20 ft in HO or around 10 in N scale.
