The Great Cypress Lines is a point to point Class 2 railroad existing during the Transition Era encompassing the years 1940-1970. While it does not exist in any particular recognizable geographic area, it represents the area of the Southeastern United States. Cities are named for family and friends. Built for operations, the railroad is run several times a year by my Operating Group, the North Atlanta Rail Barons, as well as several other Operating Groups in the Atlanta area. Scenery is at least 75 % complete at this writing.
