Layout Tour Dates

Sunday, November 1, 2020 - 9:00am

Important Note: For 2020, there will be no "open house", in-person layout tours.  All Piedmont Pilgrimage tours will be "virtual", video-only tours.

Layout Description:

The railroad is designed as a garden with trains running through.  There are over 700 live plants with a waterfall/stream.  There is an outside loop with an inside mainline that is a figure 8 style with a half loop.  Keeping with the garden theme, we wanted a resort atmosphere.  Because of this, buildings are limited.  There is a Bed and Breakfast, equestrian stables, and fishing in the creek.  The main attraction of the layout is the trestle system required by the 17” elevation changes.
