Next up on the layout tours was Brian Glock’s beautiful layout, the Sugar Valley Railroad. It is also on the Piedmont Pilgrimage, an annual set of layout tours, and you can see details here.
Your first view is a stunning trestle.
There’s a super logging camp.
As you go further in you see the layout fully; on the right is a steam servicing yard and on the left a little town
The little town is absolutely gorgeous.
Many of the buildings and much of the rolling stock is scratch built.
There’s few little scenes that are great fun, such as this one.
The other side holds the steam servicing yard.
This is the FSM engine house.
Here’s beautiful loco. The weathering is exquisite.
Here’s Brian himself:
These are the scariest thing on the layout. These beetles were found in Brian’s garden. Scary. Glad I live in a country with nothing so large!
