Layout Details

This large scale pike of over 1200' track begins in a landscaped front yard with a waterfall and miniature trees. The line circles entirely around the home through mountains, by ponds, along cedar fences and under a real vineyard before entering the basement. Multiple types of construction methods for large scale railroads are visible on this railroad which has been under development for about five years. The excavated basement has been lined with stone block and valence lighted. Scenery techniques include extruded cast foam as well as natural rock. Many scratch built and kit-bashed structures are in place along the line. The outdoor portion is viewable from sidewalks, garden path and covered porches.
