10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The BB&E layout is built around a 32’ combination freight and passenger yard, with a small remnant of an older code 75 yard left on the side of the yard. From the yard a slight grade leads to multiple industries, and then along a rushing river and a concrete bridge.  As the grade decreases more farms and orchards are present, until the steep mountains. Once on the upper track, there will be a small yard, more industries, and some mountain grades.
