Scale 1:24 Power Track DCC
Set in the 1910 to 1920 period in Colorado. Engineers built three tunnels totaling 90 feet in length as they carved a 2% grade to the Summit. The mainline is single track with 4 passing sidings so opposing trains can pass. There is a reversing loop at each end so trains can run continuously on the 475 foot mainline.

Track and Battery poweer/RC Scale 1:22.5
We are modeling a fictional branch of the D&RGW Ry from La Puerta to Summit. Era is 1950-60's. Mainly steam power, but some early narrow gauge diesels also. The track goes all over a 100 x 150 size lot. Roughly 1000 feet of total trackage.
Double track main with two bridges. In 2011 we added a 6’ lift bridge based on one of the bridges in Portland. Video of the test of lift mechanism is included.

The SILETZ BAY RAILWAY is a whimsical treat, featuring close to 2 dozen nursery rhymes and scenes of fantasy and fun that change each year. With close to 300' of track, it wends its way between two homes with 6 tunnels and 6 trestles based on a 22.5 x 1 format. A nature trail through the middle is a pleasant diversion that allows the train to pop in and out of the vibrant native foliage.
