About Rob Thoms
In August 2008, I purchased Paul J. Dolkos' legendary New
Hampshire Division layout to add to my own
slowly-progressing B&M layout. While three of the major
sections of Paul's layout fit nicely into my space, the fourth
section - Barrett, New Hampshire - did not.
When we removed Barrett from Paul's layout, we knew it
would be restored as a layout section for sale, so we
handled it with great care. Barrett also had the advantage of
being the first section restored, so it received all the best
trees, bushes, backdrop photos and other scenery elements.
I have been in the hobby for only a decade and am a
neophyte next to Paul who seems to have an almost infinite
knowledge of models and railroads. Paul's patience in
answering my endless questions has been most appreciated.
Working on Paul's layout has been a big education for me.
Here is what I learned.
All photos of Barrett on this website were shot by Rob Thoms
with three hot-lights and a Nikon 5700 camera between
July 17, 2010 and August 8, 2010.
