Chason Wood Way is in "The Estates" sub-subdivision of the "Horseshoe Bend on the Chattahoochee" sub-division on Holcomb Bridge Road in East Roswell. Holcomb Bridge Road is Exit 7 on Ga. 400 (Exit 7A to Norcross to the right coming from the South.)
The entrance to Horseshoe Bend is approximately 2.6 miles east of Ga. 400 or eight traffic lights. The entrance road is Steeplechase Drive, well signposted on Holcomb Bridge Road. This is on the right hand side if you are coming from Ga. 400.
The entrance to The Estates is the second road to the right (approximately 1 mile) - River Cliff Drive. Travel on River Cliff Drive, go through a Stop sign, and then take the first road on the right. This is Chason Wood Way. Number 290 is on the left hand side up a slight hill. It may be best to go the end of the cul-de-sac and park on the right in front of 290.
If you should be coming from the east on Holcomb Bridge Road, Steeplechase Drive is approximately 1.1 mile west of Nesbit Ferry Road. (Holcomb Bridge Road is the westerly extension of Jimmy Carter Boulevard - or Ga. 140.)
Layout at a Glance
Although a layout is never ever complete, the British Railways layout is now 99% complete. You will also be able to see the start of a brand new layout in another room of the basement. Although not officially named, this layout is two levels with the major emphasis on operation. It will be Union Pacific operating in very scenic locations in Wyoming and Colorado. You will be able to view more conventional benchwork, a large helix, and a brand new layout in "early development mode”.
