Since January 12, 2006
Update- 4/18/06
elcome to the Drummer Creek Lines Garden Railroad. As spring begins to poke it's head around the corner, activity on the railroad starts to pick-up again. The engines have all been serviced along with new remote control systems installed, additionally the track crews have been busy fabricating rails and checking supplies in anticipation of a busy spring.

This winter has provided ample opportunity to build a few new structures, power poles, and cut lumber for the trestle that will need to be built this spring for the new line expansion. Please take a look around the site, watch the videos, look at the photos and stay tuned for more...
