Long Description:
"A 75’ along the wall section begins in a traditional picturesque east cost town, continues through Midwest rolling farmland before climbing into the highdesert. A right angle turn leads to another 30’ section where trains negotiate tunnels, cuts and grades through rugged mountains and forest. Two more 30’ peninsula sections feature a busy yard, towns and industries as well as a seaport terminus. Our members have all range of skills which offers a lot of opportunity to both teach and learn new modeling techniques. We welcome those who wish to visit or help with the construction.
For maximum operating realism the layout is controlled by a Digitrax DCC system with either wired or radio frequency throttles. Trackwork is Peco code 80 with very generous large radius curves. Grades are limited to a maximum 2.5% and watching a multi-unit lash-up of diesels straining to pulling an 80 car train up hill is quite the sight."
