Back in 2017 Chuck and his wife Jennifer decided to move to a retirement community, which meant the dismantling of the Argentine Industrial District Railway, and at age 80 there were no plans or opportunity to build another railroad. About everything was sold of given away so as far as Chuck was concerned his railroad building days were over.Tthe move to the retirement community was made in January 2018. About July of that same year Jennifer asked if they could locate back to a house in Prairie Village, our previous residence for 47 years. We did find a nice house with an unfinished full basement; so unexpectedly Chuck was looking at the possibility of building another railroad. They finished off a 30' X 30' area and plans were developed to build a Santa Fe railroad circa 1952 with a town that would have two branch lines beginning there; and that town was Ottawa, Kansas. To the north out of Ottawa was a branch line to Baldwin and Lawrence, Kansas. To the south was the Gridley branch, a 52-mile branch line that included some 10 small towns. With the help of six good friends, construction began in November 2018, and our first op session was in April of 2019. Scenery has been completed on three of the five towns being modeled. The clinic will discuss the concept, planning, construction, and operation of the railroad.
