What is out there for S Scale?

We have some members that collect, run, repair, restore, upgrade, and generally display their American Flyer collections. We have other members that enjoy S-Scale (1/64) modeling with unbelievable realism in S, Sn3, and Sn2-1/2. Whether you are visiting from the Midwest or from any another area, enjoy our web by clicking on buttons above. Consider becoming a member if you are interested in a rapidly growing scale of model railroading that takes slightly more space than HO, much less than O or 027 and has much to offer regarding interaction. 

On a somber note... A good friend and club member has passed away. Ron has contributed something about Dick and his involvement with the club for many years. See his layout on the scale pages. 

I am very sorry to report that member of the Badgerland S Gaugers for 45 years, Richard (Dick) Kloes passed away peacefully in his sleep early this morning. He had a valiant fight with cancer and finally wore out.

In all of the years that Dick belonged to our club, he was what is called a "participating" member. At one time or another he held nearly every officers position in the Badgerland. S Gaugers. He worked on the club's modular layout, the club's table top layout table, ran the club's swap meets, hosted club meetings at his home, had open houses for conventions and was always there to help out when needed. His home train layout was one of the finest in the Midwest and appeared in the February 2003 NASG Dispatch in the "Meet an S Gauger" section. His scratch built bridges were featured. The diagram did not show the 16 ft.yard yard that was added at a later date.

Dick was not only my friend, but a friend to all that met him. The Root River Southern may be shut down, but will long be remembered,  S Gauge has lost one of it's finest. BSG will miss him.

At this time I have no other details to report.
