I-75 (N/S): get off at the 120 South Loop. If you are going north on I-75, you will get off at the S120 loop and veer to the right. If you are coming south I-75, at the top of the exit ramp turn left. Go through the second stop light and exit right onto Route 120 (Upper Roswell Road). At the bottom of that ramp, turn right.

Go to the fifth stoplight and turn left onto Old Canton Road. You observe a Quik Trip on the SE corner and a carwash on the NW corner.)

Go the next light and turn right onto Sewell Mill Road.

Go to the next light and turn left on to Murdock Road.

Go to the first street on the right and turn right onto Wicks Creek Trail. We are at the end of the road in a cul-de-sac. We are straight ahead in the cul-de-sac (3208 Wicks Creek Trail). There is an American flag at the door. I am requesting that all attendees park ONLY on the right side of the street coming into the subdivision. We must allow sufficient room for the other homeowners to come and go with ease and to allow emergency vehicles easy access if assistance is needed.

I look forward to sharing my train lay-out with you. Call me at 770-971-5683 if you get lost or have questions.

The development of C&P RR began in 2005 as 8’ X 16’ table. Since then, there were three expansions. The scenery and landscaping began in December 2007. The walls, elevated track supports, tunnel openings, etc., were handmade with oak.
