The Georgia Poultry Laboratory Network presents a Layout/Diorama. The emphasis of this diorama is on scenery versus railroad operations. There are two railroad lines that travel from North Georgia to the Savannah Port, Norfolk Southern and CSX. There are several professionally built buildings as well as some nice kit bashing. Our goal is to make this diorama as real as possible. This diorama is used to tell the story of the Poultry Industry from live production in the Northeast Georgia Mountains to the services and support of the Poultry Industry in the Industrial Park. The city area illustrates the consumer aspect of as well as the agriculture and community it supports, along with research and education about poultry production. The airport and Port Of Savanah underline the importance of product movement and exports. If you are interested in scenery, this industrial Diorama is a must see. A tour of the lab will also be available.
