This is a journal of my attempt to build a backyard railroad. Since I’ve never built a railroad, I expect this to be an iterative cycle of research, self-education, and trial-and-error. If you’re interested in building your own railroad, or just want to see what someone else’s experiences are in this project, then I invite you to look in on occasion and see how the project’s progressing.
Our local ABC affiliate WTVC NewsChannel9 featured the train on their local newscast. You can see the story on their website by clicking here.
