Pomfret, CT

The Pomfret, CT, modules are the creation of member Nate Gould. These modules, which debuted at the 2009 Railroad Hobby show in West Springfield, MA, are one of the scenic modules which have begun to become a standard feature during club displays. The eight foot scene features a small brick freight house on a siding as well tree covered hills. In addition, a highly detailed model of the house is located on the right side of the module.

Nate’s scenery has raised the bar for many of the other club modules. This module is one of the few which effectively uses static grass to give the look of real grass and it is expertly blended into the surrounding undercover and gravel driveways and parking lots. In addition, trees from Scenic Express cover the hills towards the back of the modules to further enhance the illusion of realism. The dirt roads are real dirt gathered from local areas which helps capture the look and feel of northeast Connecticut.

Nate plans to continue to make additions to the modules to complete the scenes. Some of the future projects include a few additional buildings as well as more cars and vehicles.
