Garden RailroadIn 2005, I started building a model railroad in the space alongside our house. The last of the trackwork was completed in the spring of 2011. The effort continues now by adding trees and other vegetation as well as buildings and scenery.
ATSF 3751No. 3751 is a 4-8-4 Northern type built for the Santa Fe Railroad. She originally served in New Mexico but ended her commercial career on the Los Angeles to San Diego run in 1953. This was the last steam run to San Diego by the AT&SF.
