SP-Layouts List
A site with reference to Espee themed Layouts

This list contain single owner's Layout reference
I hope this site can push some undecided modelers to start his layout selecting one of the astounding panoramas along the tracks of the Southern Pacific "Golden Empire".
If you want to add your layout to the site send me a mail.

Hi, my name is Enzo Fortuna, and I live in the small town of Assago, just south of Milan, in North Italy.

I start to be a Railroad fan ....well, you see the picture ?
The Man was my father... with me and my first train! (1952)

My passion in the hobby of model railroading is the
Southern Pacific Railroad
that once was one the biggest Railroad Company in US ,
and which I model in N scale .... in 1952.

N scale was always my choise: when I was 16, I've buy my first N scale steam model, an Atlas Rivarossi Indian Harbor 0-8-0.
This was the first time when N scale US steam loco’s was available here in Italy …. I must say poor models compared with the present.
When I was 26 I take the occasion of a vacation in the US and .... settle near Santa Cruz, CA, north of Felton, where I've lived several years working downhill in Palo Alto..
it was the time when the first uP silicon chip contaminate this world..... and I work on it all my life!

My layout takes the name "The Valley before the Silicon"
I've start a Blog on his construction, see the left banner link.

This site was created as a labour of love, not only to have a place where display and share my personal "experience", but also to try to "instigate" in some visitor to start some "experience" itself!

Please take your time and look around.
Enjoy your visit and hope to see you again soon.
Feel free to send me suggestions on improvements and additions.

Thanks for visiting!

Best quotes

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere

Fast is fine, but
is everything.

"A railroad station?
That was sort o
a primitive airport,
only you didn't
have to take a cab 20 miles out of town to reach it.

".I have no special talents.
I am only passionately curious. Albert Einstein

I have a seashell collection. I keep it on the beach.

Don't try to be too optimistic; it's impossible
to smile and whistle at
the same time

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia!"
...Charles Schultz

I just put my feet in the air and move them around.
...Fred Astaire
