The O Scale Trains Of Ross Sterling

I found this batch of photos that were taken on his nearly complete layout at his house on Marina St. in Moses Lake.

While he had tried to sell a few of the higher valued pieces after he moved to a new smaller location across the street, most of his collection went to his grandkids.

He had a fondness for the Milwaukee Road. He was not afraid to scratchbuild pieces he couldn't otherwise buy. The overhead wire for the electric  locomotives was live.

I have fond memories of Ross and miss him greatly.
