Don't have any pictures right now, but I've got a few guys kneeling down in the alley behind a building who appear to be betting on some "galloping dominios", while a cop in the next block is directing traffic around a work crew. My real favorite is a man with a little boy on his shoulders who is waiting for the train with President Harry Truman to come through Galesburg, Illinois, in 1948 or 1950 (there is some dispute on the date with the Burlington Route Historical Society). I periodically run a train with the Fernand Magellin with President Truman, Bess and an aide on the rear platform. The reason I like this scene is that the man was my Dad and the little boy was me. Dad wanted me to see the president, since our Zephyr was sidetracked in Galesburg while the president's train was stopped!

My favorite character is "Ben Gawkin".
Local photographer and bit of a celebrity on the model railroad.
Also the center of a layout controversy.
He's seen here in action during the great Mill Street clean up.
Another character is " Old Jeb".
He's standing by the grey truck.
