      North East Florida Rail Roaders Inc.

      I and the G gauge group have been building a new elevated G gauge railroad at my club's new location at the Florida Agricultural Museum in Palm Coast Florida.

      We now have a three track main line layout with each track over 1 scale mile in length.  So far there are four crossovers between tracks and a steam up siding. Plans call for several more sidings and a multi track freight yard to be started this summer.

      The layout is about 100 x 65 feet. It is under pine trees so we call it the Pellicer Creek & Western (PC&W), The Pine needle Line. We can accommodate track power, battery/RC, and live steam. Come visit us if you are in the area. Bring your trains!

      Nice- great to hear that, I usually come to FL in the winter with a few steamers and would certainly like to visit. But not this year, dang......

      Looks nice. I'm 2 hours away so hopefully later this spring I can come and steam there. 

      What is the light colored material that forms the surface between frame and track?

      Tom,

      It is cement board. We will be painting it gray. We vacuumed the pine needles today, but they will return.
