BRACK: Snellville resident selling model trains layout and plans history book

By Elliott Brack, editor and publisher | If you are into model railroading, you might be interested in what Jim Cofer of Snellville is doing this weekend.

Over the last 13 years, Jim has used his basement to house his own 12×16 foot O-scale, 3-rail model train layout. If you remember the Lionel toy trains, that’s the O Gauge model trains which he has. But they are not toys. One of the more sophisticated model engines can be priced as much as $2,500. His system has remote controls, comes with scale-model depots, grain elevators, roundhouses and other buildings.

FOCUS: History of first 10 years of Duluth football ready for publication

By Charles Summerour | When two members of Duluth High School’s first football squad brought up the idea of capturing the history of the school’s football beginnings, we all realized that it was important that we do so soon, as many of the school and community leaders as well as a number of players, had passed away. The result is a History of Duluth High School Football: 1959-69, which will soon be published in booklet form.
