Author Bio
Pelle K. Søeborg is a graphic designer in Farum, Denmark. In the early 1990s, several Model Railroader magazines caught his attention, and he has been a model railroader ever since. A trip to the United States in 1992 added to his interest in modeling United States prototypes. Pelle has written a number of articles for Model Railroader. His images have been featured in MR calendars in addition to Woodland Scenics and Walthers catalogs. He is the author and photographer of the book, Mountain to Desert: Building the HO Scale Daneville & Donner River, by Kalmbach Books, which demonstrates modeling techniques through the construction of his home layout.
