Welcome to Upper Michigan in the fall of 1942. The most important part of the session is to keep the copper ore flowing for the war effort. Donít let narrow gauge fool you into thinking itís only about the scenery!
Although the layout is photo finished there is plenty of operation to keep crews busy for the two and a half hours. Three train crews move between nine to twelve trains during a session and keep the yardmaster and crew busy. The yard master also controls a throttle and locomotive. Although the operation is laidback there is plenty of movement by train sheet and switch list.
All the locomotives are custom kit bashed by a professional and dear friend. The locomotives have been featured in the Narrow-Gauge Gazette in July/August 2018. The layout operation was covered in the Gazette Sept/Oct 2022. There is a third Gazette article and a Model Railroader article coming this year.
