  1. Great prototype and track design. I would have liked a bit more of the sawmill at Merced Falls even as a background. Is the incline operational?

  2. I've been watching how this layout has progressed over the last several years and I'm truly in awe of Mr. Burgess' work. This is simply one of the best model railroads that I have ever seen.
