This two-level, point to point, single division railroad is the resurrection of the best parts of the "New Brighton and Northern" which was featured in Dec. 1992 Model Railroader. 325 feet of running Mainline plus 140 feet in a double helix (viewable) add up to 14 scale miles between the two major yards. Spacious rural environment for train running between the 4 towns with about 60 on-line industries on this railroad.

The railroad does not model a specific prototype railroad in particular, however, the NBGN Railway does lease most of its motive power from the "Hill" railroads.
