You may have seen Jack Burgess' famous Yosemite Valley Railroad layout in the national model RR magazines. Fortunately, it is nearby and worth visiting. You can visit his web site which includes, along with a historical overview, insights on Jack's modeling philosophy and interests. His approach to the hobby is slightly different than most modelers since he is modeling a specific prototype rather than a generic, free-lanced railroad, duplicating it as closely as possible. Also included at this site is a link to the all-electronic historical society for the YVRR and the current newsletter for the society.
