Framing for Display

As the Visitor Center at the Quarry Gardens was taking shape, work began on the Railroad Display. I printed out the track plan for the O scale 2 rail layout full sized.

At over 30 feet long and 10 feet deep, the Railroad Display is enormous, requiring a big pile of plans.

I trimmed and taped the plan tiles into four large sections; one for each of the four scenes represented on the Display.

The plans were laid out at the Visitor Center to guide the construction of the framework.

Benchwork was built with drop sections to accommodate creeks, rivers, and a quarry.
