BENTON FLATS

NGauge

 

Benton Flats is an Ngauge layout built by George Woolnough of the Colwyn M.R.C. Situated in Montana, Benton Flats is an important junction on the route to Fort Benton. Though the layout is basically Great Northern, stock from other companies that formed the mergers in 1970 and 1995 can be seen.

 

These are mainly Burlington Northern and Santa Fe from the later merger. The aim of the layout is to increase the Great Northern stock e.g. so that a closer time period can be depicted.

 

 The stock is varied from a number of manufacturers, but the couplings are gradually being changed to Magne Matic by Micro Trains, as these do away with the 'hand from the sky'. Structures which are kit , kit bashed and scratch built are typical of this type of town especially the grain silo, a prominent landmark of almost all the communities in this type of location.
