2000 - Birth of the Railroad

After months of planning, surveying, drawing, re-surveying and re-drawing, the first 10' track panel was laid in June of 2000. By December approximately 300' of the 695' loop had been laid along with two turnouts and three crossing diamonds. Two trestles were also under construction.
