Sheraton Hotel Railroad Display by Empire Builder Railroad Designs

Stacking the foam in order to form it. All pieces are meshed together with PVC and dowels. The small brown piece on the front is the miniature mock up we did for the Sheraton to show them roughly what it would look like.

The track is on the front portion and the steel bridge is fitted for size.

Rick the Railroad Guy is forming the foam.

The wash is finished and the wooden bridge is set for placement and size.

The layout is complete in the shop. Now we have to disassemble it, haul it downtown (about 30 miles) and reassemble it.

The complete layout installed in the Sheraton Hotel Lobby
