MOBILE, Alabama -- Fun took to the rails this weekend as the Great Train Expo made a stop at the Greater Gulf State Fairgrounds in Mobile. The event attracted a modest-sized mix of serious model railroading enthusiasts and families with young children.
Devin Dunnam, a 6-year-old kindergartner at Dodge Elementary School, watches a model steam locomotive go by at the Great Train expo Sunday. There were plenty of retailers selling everything from model train equipment to railroad memorabilia and goods like mouse pads and caps. Railroad illustrator Robert West of Atlanta made his first appearance in Mobile in eight years, selling prints of his train illustrations.


West, who is also a minister, almost always has a telegraph pole with one broken, hanging crossbar somewhere in each picture he creates.
Robert West is an Atlanta-based illustrator whose portrayals of trains and railroad life in America are renowned by rail enthusiasts natinowide. The O scale Lionel train was running on a 39-by-15-foot layout assembled by the South West Alabama Railroad Modelers. West frequently illustrates rail scenes from the era of 1945 to 1960, complete with buildings and cars suitable to the time. The station across the tracks is a two-story design variation of the GM&O Building in downtown Mobile. Much of West's work illustrates the role railroads played in the 20 years starting around the end of World War II.


G scale, or garden trains, are popular outdoor model railroad layouts frequently built in dry climates like those in the western United States. The top picture is the Southern Crescent rolling through South Carolina, while the lower two depict the Central of Georgia Railroad in southern Georgia.
