Looks like my Standard Gauge layout will get a feature article sometime this year in Classic Toy Trains magazine. I wonder how many readers won't have a clue at first glance that's it's all done with paper!

I enjoyed the layout tour. I'm sure that you are correct; none of the Classic readers will have a clue, until they told, outright, that the whole thing is paper. Your talent is unequaled.

Since I have not been to Disneyland since the late 1960s, could you explain your latest addition?

Thanks for sharing your hobby,
John

Sure! I'm working to replace my freelanced mixed-media Astro Orbitor model I built in 2011:





Time and storage are not friendly to this one. Here's a pic I took last November that shows how it typically looked after being boxed:





There's just too much damage to continue using it.


So, I decided the time was right to replace it with a model I designed 100% on my own. (The ride vehicles on the previous model were designed by Robert Nava.) The Astro Orbitor is the latest incarnation in a line that started with the "Astro Jet" in 1956:





Which became the "Tomorrowland Jets" between 64 and 66 after a sponsorship change. The 1966 remodel of Tomorrowland saw the ride renamed as the "Rocket Jets" when it reopened in 1967 atop the new Peoplemover tower:





Now decidedly themed toward the impending Apollo missions:





Thirty years later they were relocated from their high perch to ground level and renamed and redesigned as the Astro Orbitor in 1997:









The "Observatron" replaced the jets on the top of the tower which by now was devoid of the Peoplemover and the short-lived and ill conceived "Rocket Rods" that replaced it:





Obviously, I'm going retro and "modeling" (and I use that term loosely) what was my favorite version, the Apollo inspired jets of 1967:





The next big part is the Peoplemover:

Thanks for a very enjoyable history lesson. I guess that I never visited that area of the park, because my kids were 4 and under and we were looking for more "grounded" entertainment.
