George Sellios

George Sellios is the owner of Fine Scale Miniatures, a business dedicated to producing detailed model kits of structures for model railroad enthusiasts. He is also an accomplished modeller and is well-known in the hobby for his creation, the "Franklin & South Manchester Railroad".

Fine Scale Miniatures

FSM has been producing craftsman structure kits since the 1980s from its manufacturing centre in Peabody, Massachusetts.

Franklin & South Manchester

The F&SM uses the same initials as Sellios' company and is co-located in the headquarters for FSM. It is a model railroad set in 1935 in an industrial area of New England during the Great Depression.

Sellios began construction of the F&SM in April 1985 and dedicates approximately three months per year to the endeavour, with the remaining nine being dedicated to design and production work with his business.

Active in the hobby since he was 13, Sellios' F&SM is a large diorama occupying a space measuring approximately 1600 square feet. His first influence in the hobby was John Allen and Sellios' work has improved through the years, with several features in Model Railroader and an episode of Tracks Ahead. There are 3 commercial videos dedicated to the F&SM, produced by the Allen Keller "Great Model Railroads" series.
