Torbolton and Bay RR

REGION: Ottawa South

The Torbolton and Bay RR is being rebuilt after a move in 2018. It is a 2 level layout connected by a helix. Once completed there will be approximately 700 feet of main line including the double track helix. By the time of the Tour all track work should be completed with trains running. Most of the industries will be in place and about 5% of the scenery completed. The layout, when completed, will represent the modern era with both through and local freights. There will be one main yard, 3 smaller yards to serve local industries and an interchange/staging area with approximately 40 feet of track. The layout will have 10 different industries and 2 engine facilities. The lower level will have a double track main, the upper will be single main with passing sidings to make life interesting.
