South Shasta Lines Miniature Railway

Godrey Humann, creator of the South Shasta Lines Miniature Railway, died April 15 2009 at his Gerber home.

Model Railroader June 2009 issue have published his last review article of this O scale historic piece of Americana.

Housed in the 36-by-60-foot basement of the Gerber home Humann built in 1949, the track rings the walls with exact models of long-gone train depots in Gerber, Red Bluff and Anderson, then winds through Redding and its depot on the room's center platforms, traversing mountainous bridges and tunnels, and ends at the Dunsmuir depot.
Humann, a 96-year-old retired farmer and thresher, began work on the model in 1950.
