Begun in 2002 we have about 400 feet of track. Represented are the Southern Pacific Railroad and the Virginia & Truckee Railroad (passenger and freight trains) during their active years including steam and diesel. The layout includes a 360+ loop, tunnels and a water feature. It all fronts on open space that gives it the appearance of a larger layout. We are all track power. I have overcome many difficulties to get six trains to run at one time without any direct control. There are many small plants and trees, hand built buildings copied from the original and hand carved figures to fit into the scenes.
