Layout Details

The video above is a replay from our 2020 "virtual" Piedmont Pilgrimage.

For 2021, this will be an in person tour of this outdoor garden railway. 

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.
