About the Layout

St Louis Division of the Santa Fe Railway. This is the first year that this new HO scale railroad will be open for operations, and Prairie Rail will be the first time out of towners will grace the rails. The railroad is theoretical taking into consideration that the Santa Fe Railway always wanted a route from Kansas City to St.Louis to Chicago. Set in the late summer of 1978 the railroad features heavy mainline action. St. Louis will be our major yard with a pair of Division Point Yards to be located “route wise” on either side of the major yard. The railroad also includes a very busy branch line down to Columbia Missouri.

The branchline is operational and will be the portion of the layout that will be operated during Prairie Rail.
