The Beaver Valley is fictitious, it is a subdivision of the Great Northern Railroad.
You will see GN trains (steam and Diesel) on a regular basis. There will be the occasional
BN, NP and CP trains making the rounds. This is a work in progress, and lots of
basic scenery is still being worked on. Hope to get a track diagram done
sometime. Work has started on the next subdivision (yet unnamed), see the
work in progress below. We
also belong to the N-Land Empire N-Scaler's
The Original Section
Beaver Valley Lake and Station
see the lake , parts of the station and Lumber Mill.
The lake is Woodland Scenics EZ-Water, the building kits are from various suppliers.
The Beaver Valley Grain Elevator Complex.
wheat farmers ship their grain by rail to various markets.
The elevator is Walthers, the small bins are Rix (Rix elevator is on order), the small
elevator is by American Model Builders. The vechiles are Walthers and GHQ.
The road is now tree lined and had a series of Burma Shave signs.
The Gold Mine.
Gold ore is mined and
shipped to a processing facility.
The mine kit is a Campbell Kit.
Moose Gold Flats
Use to be a gold mining town, but now is a
tourist attraction. Don't remember the building manufacturers. The western
ones were kits.
The High Bridge. (Looking for better name) It seems I'm
always cleaning dead bugs out of this area, so maybe it should be the Dead Bug Bay Bridge.
bridge spans a small bay in a larger lake.
Bridge by Micro Engineering with Fine N-Scale Products Piers.
is all scenic, but still collects dead bugs.
Once upon a time this was a dairy farm.
The barn remains from that time. There are still a few dairy cows around, but now
buffalo are the main livestock.
Looking at the yard.
Most of the
turnouts are Peco. Backshop and Ice Plant by Walthers. Diesel and steam engine service
facilities by Bachmann. Canning plant by Pola. Power Plant by Con-Cor.
Yard ballast by Arizona rock and mineral.
A top down view of the yard.
Not a perfect panoramic view, but better than nothing. Those of you with sharp eyes
may be able to find the GN circus train by Micro-Trains, and a hint of the rerun by
