We are located off Brazelton Hwy between the Hamilton Mill exit and 211 exit off I-85.  From the Hamilton Mill exit turn left onto Brazelton Hwy and go about 5 miles, turn left (North) into Chateau Forest Sub.  From the 211 exit, turn right onto brazelton Hwy, and go about 2 miles, turn right (North) into the Chateau Forest sub.  1050 Chateau forest Rd is the main road through the sub, and we are the next to last house on the left.

 

 

 

 

Layout at a Glance

My layout is a work in progress, having been relocated from our old residence in Hamilton Mill in Aug 2012.  The layout concept is models the ‘Big Four’ route from Buffalo to Chicago, with main yards at Buffalo (Lower Level), and Chicago, upper level, with a smaller yard at Toledo (lower level).  Like my last layout, this one will have signals and a computerized CTC panel in due time, but we are still in the basic benchwork and track laying stages now.  Hope to have trains running by the Open House date!
