Carol Valley Railroad

Layout Description

The Carol Valley is a B&O themed layout set in the Appalachians. The layout combines out and back, point to point and continuous run operation. It represents the transition period with early diesel and a variety of leased steam engines. We service the Carol Valley with a branch to Equinox.

The layout was featured in MR July 2015.

We have four interchanges to move cars on and off layout.
We also have a turntable, wye and a loop.

There are a number of challenging switching areas on the layout. Equinox is a favorite area for operators. The yard and town of Jackman are also a challenge.
