Re: Colorado Midland

I’ve just seen this thread on one of my occasional visits to the forum. And yes, I’m interested in the Colorado Midland. It strikes me as an exciting modelling project, particularly if you’re bold enough to model the east side of Hagerman Pass! If I ever attempt a CM-inspired layout then it will hav...

I’ve no desire to scratch-build and am pretty rubbish at making kits, so any l...
