Review of John Allens Gorre and Daphetid

 4.3 of 5 (11)
Gorre and Daphetid (Gory and Defeated) is the most famous model railroad built in this century. Two weeks after the death of it designer and builder, John Allen, it was destroyed by fire. All recordings were believed to have been destroyed.

Thanks to recent discovery of the films, this tape, remastered, offers you the ultimate of model railroading: a vast network of standard, narrow gauge and mixed gauge- even a trolley line. More than 100 bridges, no two alike, some soaring 5 feet above the floor, others crawling the labyrinthine canyons of the Akinback Mountain range, complete with working cable cars and water wheels. Includes the saga of the notorious Sore Feats Gang and their terrible but richly-deserved final demise.

We've used John's own slides to magnify his exquisite detail, from snow capped peaks to ocean car ferry, and bring to life to the thousands of miniature people and working railroad artifacts that surprised and delighted so many- even non- modelers.
