E-Pass #4 – Paliz Bay

paliz_bay_railpass_052.jpgPeter Borcherd’s Paliz Bay layout is a 2’x10′ HO scale switching layout that appeared in the August 1997 issue of Model Railroader. The layout was progressing well a few years ago, but Peter says he hasn’t worked on it for about 2 years. It did make at least one appearance at a public show though, according to the “Latest Updates” page on the Paliz Bay site which hasn’t been updated in quite a while.

Most recently Peter has been working on a set of BendTrak modules (N-scale) called the Rochelle Intermodal, depicting a fictional BNSF Intermodal facility near Rochelle, Illinois. Peter has some great videos showing the modules and a signal system that he is testing.

So, hop aboard for a tour of Peter Borcherd’s Paliz Bay Railway and Navigation Company and the Rochelle Intermodal.

Peter’s Summer Valley Rail Pass was # 13, issued on May 19, 2000.
