While visiting our home layout tours in the Tyrone and Newnan areas, consider stopping in to see the Tyrone Museum’s new model train layout in Tyrone, GA, at 881 Senoia Road. They will be open Sunday 2:00pm-4:00pm. (Free!) For more information, visit their website using the link below.
The ERR (HO) is a modern logging railroad depicting the Cascade Mts of Oregon, from Coos Bay to Grants Pass. Coos Bay is a major intermodal
port and Amtrak destination. Logging happens in the mountains at Camp #6 near
Eagles Nest and is transported to the paper mill, Lumber mill, and plywood mill. Processed paper and lumber is shipped out through both ends (CB and GP). Coos Bay has a small shipyard, gravel export by barge, and grain export facilities. Unit coal trains arrive at the power plant, unit grain trains to the flour mill, and intermodal trains between CB and GP. Wendy Hollow is the home of a large steam museum with all the required service facilities. Planned, but not completed for the open house is a cannery complex and fishing village at Gold Beach in my new office area. GN, BN, BNSF, UP, SP make up most of the diesel roster, however, the steam engines are from various roads.
There is one duck-under to see the main part of the layout. (48" clear).
