Layout at a Glance

The Sugar Creek Valley is mainly a logging railroad located in the Appalachian Mountains during the 1940's and 1950's. My layout also includes an engine maintenance facility, a farm, a sawmill and many other unique features that must be seen to be appreciated. The SCV features personally designed and built trestles, bridges , tunnels and some scratch built buildings. All features , to include engines and rolling stock , are weathered. This layout was featured in O Gauge Railroading Magazine's January 2008 issue. The layout is also featured in O Gauge Railroading Magazine's greatest layouts video Volume 6.
