Gold Dog Railroad

2004 Expansion

In 2004 we decided to expand our railroad. The original loop, built in 2003 ran at ground level. We decided to add a raised section for a second loop, point to point and a pond. Of course a pond meant a water fall and a water fall meant a mountain and that meant a tunnel. Here are some photos of that addition being built.

 

 

Overview of the new raised garden area Here is the view from the back side
A double tunnel makes room for a future point to point Note the power post in the center. Not a good idea.
Two bridges will take the track over the lower track I used stakes to mark the level of the track. Then filled as needed.
The tunnel will support a water fall flowing into the pond Finished? No, wife says "It's too small, we need a bigger pond!" So, this lasted until spring 2005
