Layout Description:

The Decktown and Bigstump RR is an imaginary branch line of the White Pass and Yukon. Trains run through a wooded setting on the side of my yard along a single track main line with a reverse loop at each end. The track crosses three trestles and three bridges and goes through two tunnels. It also passes through my workshop which is the home base for my layout building business, Train Installations LLC.
