Mel Johnson's modules
One of Mel's modules represents a generic Wyoming town with a Union Pacific watering and coal facility of the the 1920's. His five-module scene shows an engine facility that has models of structures from a variety of actual UP locations in Wyoming and Kansas. Some of the many buildings include a five-stall roundhouse with operating turntable, coaling and water facilities, a repair shop and a PFE ice transfer plant (ITP). Passengers and freight are served by the Marysville station. Mel has an abundance of highly-detailed UP locomotives and rolling stock as well as highway vehicles and many mini-scenes such as a dog knocking over a trash can. His Marysville town module includes a highly detailed small town featuring storefronts with full interiors built with the help of his wife, Pat.
Mel also built the club's farm corner module. As The Old Machinist, Mel writes his Brain Drain Unclogged blog that includes some railroad and model railroad posts among other topics.
