SPRING

The spring scene brings us to a railroad junction in rural America. The valley is complete with mountains, farm houses and an arch bridge. The bridge is a replica of the Starrucca Viaduct that was used by the Erie Railroad during the Great Depression. The track from the 1950l layout was replaced with GarGraves "Phantom Track" which was donated by Don Roder, the owner of GarGraves Trackage Corporation.

The file is LARGE and may take a few minutes to download, so please be patient. It is worth the wait!
Moving your mouse slowly will take you around the entire layout.
When you cross a historic spot, its history will appear! A special thanks to Gabe Pellegrino, a historian and librarian at the Rundel Library
and to Dan Muggeo, a RIT graduate and computer programmer who assisted us with this project , and to Josh Marrah , a RIT student and photographer.
