Alas, John Whitby Allen, who inspired me in my youth, is no longer with us and would probably not appreciate having his remains put on display in a museum.  Even more unfortunate, the Gorre and Daphetid was lost in a fire shortly after John's death.  The few pieces that survived are mostly or all in private collections and would not make much of a display in a museum.  Perhaps a model railroad museum dedicated to the memory of John Allen and his Gorre and Daphetid would be more appropriate.

p.s. That is some garden railroad you linked to.  The owner must have used some heavy equipment to move all that rock and soil.  The results show off his bridges very nicely.

Growing older is mandatory but growing up is optional.

i know it was lost in a tragic fire 10 days afterword but what i was trying to say is maybe a copy of one of his awinspiring layouts would be neet and i also know that the last 2 remaining runable engines are owned by Kalmbach books and are on display.
