Chelma Canyon

Gauge/Scale: 1:48 scale On30

Layout Size: 5.5m X 5.5m


Chelma Canyon was inspired by Colorado narrow gauge railways used for transportation in remote locations for passengers, freight and mining materials.  Our model incorporates a main line running through the town and on down to the canyon by and over the river.  In addition there is a line running up steep gradients and over high bridges to the Chelma Canyon Mine.  A central back scene separates the two sides of the layout giving quite different aspects of the layout for the viewers.  The wye in the town leads to the fiddle yard with interesting operating opportunities.  The layout is fully DCC controlled with sound equipped locomotives.
