When designing this layout, the objective was to explore different geographies, different era’s and a blend of industrial settings that reflected my interests. From a beautifully detailed steel mill to the waterfront River Street, in Savannah, each viniet tells a story of the time. Some of the top model builders and scale artists in the U.S. participated in the layouts construction, seeing its first full operational run in December of 2013. Surrounding the layout is a hand painted mural depicting the four seasons and situated to literally extend the eye beyond each of the layouts scenic vistas. This year, (2019) we’ve added a new dimension to the layout, sound and lighting effects over the full layout. From the city to the country, to the mountains, sounds of activity will be felt, including a thunder and lightning storm over the mountains.

Directions 

From I285, exit on Peachtree Industrial, North. Exit at Winters Chapel. Bare left onto Winters Chapel for approximately 1.5 miles. Turn left onto Nesbit Ferry. Proceed through the signal (Spalding Drive) and travel about 1 mile to 8050 Nesbit Ferry Rd. on the left. Parking will be on the street only. The driveway is quite long and the access to the layout requires steps, so we cannot accommodate wheelchairs. My apologies. Signs will lead the way.
