My Layouts - Bear Creek and South Jackson Railroad II
Switching South Jackson

Bear Creek and South Jackson #2
The second incarnation of my railroad empire.

The 2nd BC&SJ railroad

Sept 2000 - Sept 2002

The Garage Version

Yep. I did it. The old 4x8 Bear Creek and South Jackson has been gone now for quite some time (sold!). In its place (and a lot more place too!) in the garage the new incarnation of the Bear Creek and South Jackson is arising.

The new layout started in April 2000, it's an around the walls (and peninsula) helix design (the layout IS the helix). Using this design I am able to fit 270 feet (4.5 scale miles) of mainline into the 328 square feet I have available. And in keeping with the desires of the my cfo (and wife), the cars will be able to use the garage along with the layout (big garage!).
