Sceniced layouts in northern NJ

Does anyone know of any sceniced layouts in northern New Jersey?  I know Rick Spano's layout is just north of Trenton.  I'm curious about others a little closer to me.  Thanks.

Flemington isn't an N scale layout.  I should have been more specific, as I'm preferably looking for N scale layouts that have Code 55 trackage.  The N scale Union NJ club on Route 22 has existed for decades and consists of Atlas Code 80 trackage.

Isn't that an HO scale layout?

I specifically am looking for N scale layouts that feature complete sceniced sections and Code 55 trackage.  Those three criteria are mandatory.  Being located in northern New Jersey is preferred, but anything within a 60-mile radius of the George Washington Bridge would be of interest.  So far, the only layout I know of that fits the criteria is Rick Spano's, but I'm hoping for something a little closer.  Thanks.

IIRC his name is Mark Pitanza,  he had several pictures in the Walthers N Scale Reference Book.
I think I saw some of his pictures in a forum, too, but don't remember where.

Bryan - did you ask Jack - or Warren who does custom layout building at the Model RR Shop - I would be sure they would know some...  I also think Paul or Cory at Atlas know of some that have been used for catalog shots...

(If Jack suggests me, unfortunately the layout is stripped back to bare benchwork and totally under construction)

If it's the Staten Island Railway guy that was in the Walthers catalog a few years ago then the pictures I saw showed Kato Unitrack.

Bryan, there's probably a reason you're being cryptic, but if not, do you mind sharing why you have such rigid criteria?  Is this for a photo shoot or for ops testing a pre-production sample?

Didn't speak with Jack, I will do that.  Atlas is in the middle of their two-week summer hiatus, left a message for Paul.

Video shoot.  Pre-pro testing I do here first, then again at Atlas because their testing layout is more elaborate (every radii, every turnout, etc).
