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