I have been a model railroader since I was four years old and my father covered a 4x8 sheet of plywood with grass mat for our Tyco Santa Fe train set.
When I opened up this year's issue of Model Railroad Planning I was blown away by one small photo, and it didn't even include any trains.

Fred's other passion is photography, and in the photos here and on his web site you can see that he has mastered the art.

Secondly, Fred avoids the common pitfall that besets most model railroaders (including me): billiard-table flats.
Speaking of scenery, I asked him for some advice for those of us who have not yet started construction on our own layouts: "Be picky about what kits you purchase. Fred has also written a book about the Allegheny Central called Changes: A Model Railroad Comes to Life. I think the reason that I have been gushing so much about Fred's modelling is that I hope that my layout will one day evoke the same feelings as his Allegheny Central.


Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. In recent years I have become somewhat respected in the model railroad community for my dedication to manufacturing highly detailed models.
The photo of Commerce Street on Fred Lagno's Allegheny Central Railroad is without a doubt the most wonderful model railroad photograph I have ever seen. The lighting is natural, the early morning sun streaming in from the east and poking its nose between the buildings. He does not stick with the ubiquitous "wedgy" shot that is so common in both model railroading and railfanning. Firstly, it's obvious that Fred references real photographs to see how the colours of different elements of each scene relate to each other.
The popularity of foam layout construction has resulted in a lot of layouts that make Saskatchewan look like the Rocky Mountains. He has created a web site for the Allegheny Central as well as his model photography business. This is a full-colour, illustrated hardcover novel told from the perspective of a resident of Fred's layout, Sam Rawlings. The year may be different (though not by much), the season and the location may be different, but the aim is the same: I want to evoke the spirit of a bygone time and place, without the billiard table landscapes or unrealistic colours that have plagued me in the past. I'm bothered especially as I visited OZ way back in 1987 and have a special place in my heart for you mates.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. But despite being a part of the model railroad community, I haven't yet had the guts to start building my model railroad - it's still a dream, a trackplan, and an empty room (and this nifty web site). By putting most of the street in the shade and allowing the sun to wash the background in colour, Fred brings our eyes deep into his composition.


Instead he sets up scenes, or in some cases he frames a photo just as it would be framed if we were a casual railfan who happened to see a train coming and wanted to grab a shot - even if stuff is in the way.
Have you ever seen a gorgeous model railroad that was let down by jarring psychedelic "autumn" leaves on the trees or bright grey ballast under well-rusted rails? Even in the Prairies, there is a subtle undulation to the landscape that is very obvious when it's missing.
Fred's photographs serve to illustrate Sam's story and you can really believe that the people and places in Changes once existed.
These poles have been working hard for decades and are almost asking for someone to invent fibre-optic cables and bury the power lines so they can take a much-needed break. I want to drive down this street and see what interesting pieces of small-town 1970s Americana are to be found there in the sun.
Most of us focus on trains, trains and trains - we wouldn't dare allocate so much real estate to a quiet street with no railroad action. Fred's roads look like they were built into the landscape rather than laid on a hockey rink. This is one of the reasons I have decided to stick with the ancient method of window screen on wood formers for my landscape construction - the last layout that Dan and I built had areas that would give a ping-pong table a run for its money in the flatness department. In Keenemont he's showing us a glimpse of small-town America in 1979, even the parts of town that didn't feel the rumble of passing freights. I take a bunch of photos and head back to the car, confident that I will have captured the power of that massive piece of machinery in my brilliant photography.
If you are a young person who has been raised on digital photography, you have never had this experience - but those of us a bit older can look at Fred's photo and say, "yeah, that was me." The fact that Fred captured this feeling so perfectly elevates his model photography above the rest.
