Sources of Information on John Allen and the

Gorre & Daphetid

After his death, in 1973, John

Allen’s good friend Linn

Westcott paid tribute to him and

the Gorre & Daphetid by writing

the book "Model Railroading

with John Allen. The Story of

the Fabulous HO Scale Gorre &

Daphetid." The book, originally

published by Kalmbach

Publishing Co. in 1981 and

released in three subsequent

printings (ISBN 0-89024-298-4), is presently out of print but available in

local libraries,  through interlibrary loan, and, occasionally, for sale on the

internet through Amazon or Ebay.

John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid are featured on Wikipedia.

Two websites pay tribute to John Allen and the Gorre & Daphetid, Jeff

Witt’s website and Peter Prunka’s "John Allen’s Gorre & Daphetid – A

Reminiscence." Both sites provide photos. Peter Prunka's site provides

photos of all three layouts constructed by John Allen. Central Valley Model

Works website also has photos.
