History of Model Railroad Custom Benchwork

   Donald Danuser began the business in approximately 1985 or 1986 in a two car garage at Hood, VA. Within several years he was out growing that shop and built a 24'x24' addition onto the two car garage. Within several more years Don out grew that shop space so he built a 50' x 70' shop on the same property. The small shop than be came our wood shop and the 50x70 became our finish shop.
   In 1987 I (Vernon Peachey) went to work for Don. We built custom layouts for people that collected model trains but didn't find the time to build their own layout. That is where we came into focus. People came to us to build their layout as we still do today. In building the layout we begin with the benchwork (platform), the track, wiring, and scenery.The scenery is made of geodesic foam for the hard shell and rocks are made of two part resin. We make simulated water falls, with cut downs for rivers, lakes and canyons. We make trestles and bridges to span canyons or rivers.
   In 1995 I took the opportunity to purchase the business.
We begin working out of the same shop, but in 2008 we built a new 50x60 attached to a 28x35 shop in Rochelle, VA. What set us apart from many builders is we truly do custom layouts. We cater to our customers and what they want on their layout. Our goal is to satisfy our customer and end up with a friend. Thanks for your interest. Vernon Peachey
