Prototype modeling in 1/87th scale
Chip Syme is a retired professional locomotive engineer based out of Canton Ohio, who's career spanned the PC and Conrail era into Norfolk Southern. Chip's model railroad is a well known, fully functional model transportation system. In 2009 Chip retired from Norfolk Southern, and started a new section of his layout. This section would be the only part of Chip's layout to survive the disastrous house flood of 2014, and go on to be integrated in his 2015 layout rebuilding.

Chosen by the NMRA as Webmaster's Choice for February 2005!
