I took these pictures of the HO-scale layout of the Society of Model Engineers at the Milwaukee School of Engineering in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in November 2002. Not all of these pictures came out, but I am including them all here.

This Citgo station is in Waukesha. There really are two Citgo stations near the tracks in Waukesha, so I made Citgo signs for this Walthers service station kit.
