The Sierra Western is a freelance railroad set in the late 60's. The
modeled portion is a secondary main line of the large class one road and
is located between the cities of Butte, Montana and Boise, Idaho. The
layout features seven cities/towns and features two branch lines and a
Milwaukee Road branch and interchange. The railroad operates by timetable
and train order operation and features a large classification yard, long
trains and helper district.
NOTE: Operators scheduled for Saturday on the Sierra Western will stay
for the day and operate both AM and PM sessions. Operating positions can
change between sessions. Different trains are scheduled for AM and PM so
the session is not duplicated.
