The  "ARIZONA GRAVEL COMPANY" is the second layout under that name. The first was a "On30" small switching layout, while this one is built in 1/2" scale or 1/24th. It is a simple oval where a small diesel, running on 15" gauge track, pulls a small train of ore cars. It was built purely as a demonstration layout to show what can be done in a large scale in a small area, and using "On30" track, modified "On30 locomotives and rolling stock.

The layout measures 4'6" by 2'0" and could contain months, if not years of modelling enjoyment. Below can be seen several of the building flats, vehicles, and  figures, while the company's tiny diesel passes through the scene.
