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: Snellville residents were teachers, breeders of thoroughbred cattle

By James W. Cofer, president, Snellville Historical Society | This is the story of two local residents who dedicated their lives to educating Snellville’s children, maintained a second career of raising pigs, Holstein cows, and finally Black Angus beef cattle, and parlayed their success into franchising and artificial insemination of national championship Angus thoroughbreds.

It’s the story of Blanche and Troy Thomason, former Snellville residents.
