Nashville Chattanooga Garden Railroad
This layout is a freelance layout with over 1800 feet of track, and growing larger before the convention! The layout runs steam, live steam and diesel locos and has more than 60 buildings. The layout blends elevated rail and track laid in the ground to showcase the best of both options. Numerous trees dot the landscape, as well as signal crossings and bridges. The turntable has plenty of space for trains and has a siding that runs trains into a true trainshed for storing trains and gear.
(As of yet, we do not have a way to get an image of the entire layout. We estimate the layout to be 100x300 feet – but that could be too small.)
