Ed Sauers' B&O layout is still under construction, but it already looks fantastic. This 32'x17' layout is set in the 1940s/1950s, and is based on a folded dog-bone design created by NASG Dispatch Editor Emeritus Jeff Madden. The track is all code 100, and all but two turnouts were made using the Fast Tracks fixture.

Jim modified his NASG tank car by removing the man-way railings. He lettered it with a Tichy decal set. The car was photographed while running on the Des Plaines Valley S Scalers' club layout.

Dick Karnes shows that modeling an electrified system in S-scale is quite doable. The electric steeplecab was sold undecorated by Hoquat Hobbies. It was a craftsman kit, with several of the key components needing to be provided by the modeler. Dick used an old Walthers O-scale "short" pantograph, S Scale Loco & Supply Reading tender truck sideframes, an Athearn HO-scale SW-9 powered chassis, and Kadee HO-scale couplers. Many extra details were added.

Mike Marmer's "S Helper Field" baseball field is beautiful in this night scene. Since these fields were usually placed near railroad track due to their low cost, Mike's tracks passing right by the field is very realistic.

The NASG booth at the 2014 World's Greatest Hobby show in Novi, Michigan. The NASG has a booth at several large shows throughout the year. In addition to literature, membership applications, and other free hand-outs, the booth will also display a collection of current S-scale equipment on the market. Knowledgeable staff will man the booth and be glad to answer any questions about the NASG itself, and/or S-scale in general.

The NASG's booth was at the January 2017 World's Greatest Hobby Show held near Seattle, Washington. Many local volunteers helped put on a fantastic display with support from the NASG's Promotion Committee. Two loops of track were set up in a U-shaped table arrangement, drawing quite a crowd.

This photo was taken on Gaylord Gill's "Buffalo & Chautauqua" layout. The point-to-point layout represents portions of PRR's Northern Division in 1953, centered at Buffalo, NY. The photo shows the yard at Olean, NY, which is located along the Buffalo Main Line enroute to Emporium. Both the RSD5 and the tank car are early brass imports, while the fuel depot is scratchbuilt using a variety of brass, plastic, and wood components. Gaylord's backdrops are hand-painted, although the structures there are cut from photos.
