This is a free-lanced railroad that has Shays, Heislers, small steam switchers and early Diesel locomotives to power the railroad. The layout contains over 50 structures consisting of 8 Fine Scale Miniatures and many Campbell kits some dating back 40 years. The scenery is complete with the exception of some background trees.  LittleTowne is a village that has all except one structure built from wood kits.
