      Yup.  Dr Chubb is incredibly talented, and has had a major impact on my RR hobby.  I still have the copy of "How to Operate your Model Railroad" from when I was a kid. Its dog-eared and beat up, but I still look through it.

       

      The issue of Scale Rails that was (mostly) all about him and his layouts is a great read, too.  When he moved, he purpose-designed the basement for his new layout.

      Is this the same Sunset Valley that goes back to the late 70's?

       

      I have it in a book from that era along with Bob Hegge's Crooked Mountain line.

      No.  In th early 2000s they moved to a new, much bigger house.   He purpose-built the basement, including excavating under the garage, for the new RR.  It even has its own entrance, to avoid people tromping through the living area of the house.
