No toy train layout would be complete without Lionel's operating milk and cattle cars. They are here for all the "kids" to see them work.

A recently completed model area, the Carquinez Straits. Here we see the rivers coming down from the Sierra to meet the Bay.

DSC09191

Located on the Straits is the little town of Crockett. The main railroad line from the East to the Bay Area comes through town.

On the south side of the Straits, is the Fan Francisco Bay Trail: a walking and biking trail that goes around the Bay. Here the hills are steep and covered with oak trees in some areas. The trail is what is left of the road that carried cars from Martinez to Crockett.
