Tom Yorke is well known in O and HO Scale circles for his spectacular structure and railroad related kits. His attention to detail and innovative design style make his models unique and much sought after. His craftsmanship gives all of his models "The Look" that sets them apart from the norm.---
"In the Fall of 2012, Walter Vail contacted me about Showcase Models doing some of my models for the N and HO scale market. Since those scales are really way too small for me to work in at this stage, I decided that his company would be a wonderful way for other model railroaders to enjoy my kits. ---
Quote from Tom: "My own modeling started way back in about 1955 with an American Flyer set. I started building my own freight cars from scratch in wood from the Dollar Car series by H. O. Williams. Little did I know at the time that I would be working for him at Miami Model Builders in later years. Howie taught me a lot about miniatures.
After I graduated from college I became an Advertising Art Directer for several years before starting work in California for WED Enterprises, now known as Walt Disney Imagineering. I worked on many projects over the years including my first which was the redesign for the Disneyland Railroad when the Santa Fe decided to pull its sponsorship back in 1974. I have worked as a Graphic Designer for every park of Disney's until my retirement in 2000. While working at Disney I started Thomas A Yorke Ent. back in 1976. I have spent almost every year since then designing and manufacturing Hydrocal buildings, mostly in O scale.
I am now devoting most of my time doing custom work and modeling my own small Gn15 empire in the basement."......Tom Yorke
