Nashville Valley RR – Phase 2 has begun

After some reworking of the original plan, I have begun Phase 2. The track now has 1,750′ of main line. The first part of phase 2 will add another 400′, making a reverse look and double tracking part of the main line. In the spring, the second part of phase two will add another 1,000′. This part will include a few bridges. I’m still working out how I want to build the bridges. I have the basic layout in my head. Tomorrow, my dad and I are going to do some transit work to figure elevations and the kind of prep work that must be done. Below, you can see the switch at the end of the 400′ extension that will complete the reverse loop.

Switch that will return to the main line before crossing the culvert and entering the tunnel.
