Bay Area Layout Tour: Rick Fortin

MODEL RAIL RADIO ( host Tom Barbalet recently scheduled a layout tour of several fantastic layouts here in the Bay Area. There was a special guest visiting from Australia and Tom took the opportunity to arrange the tour so he could see several spots on his trip.

This video features the layout of Rick Fortin in his grand, serpentine layout area.

See photos from Rick's here:

Model Rail Radio consistently provides the best model railroading content. It is a show without advertisers or sponsors where the listeners create the content: a simple formula that has seen the show grow rapidly into the Number One model rail podcast in terms of listeners (69,000+ and rising), hours of content produced per month (9 hours plus) and numbers of guests on the show (typically 15 or more).
It is an open format where anyone can participate. The big names in model railroading call in to talk to regular folks and people who are quickly emerging as new greats in the hobby.


  1. Nice job with the video. I guess I need to spend a bit more time polishing mine. You have raised the bar sir!

    1. Wow! Thank you.
      Yeeah...helps that it's what I do for a living. I wish I brought a tripod and my work cameras. I would have been able to avoid the jitter cam, hand held look. :)

      Thanks for looking!
