Crystal River and Crystal River and San Juan Railroads – HO and Hon3
Rudy’s love affair with the beauty and history of the Crystal River Valley in Colorado began with his first visit in the 1970’s. His efforts to recreate the standard gauge line south out of Carbondale to Redstone, the narrow gauge Highline up to Coal Basin and the standard gauge line from Redstone to the town of Marble began in 2013. Coal Basin was the location of a coal mine, Redstone was the site of the coking operations and Marble was the location of the Marble Quarry and Mill. This is where the block of marble for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was cut from. The layout is steam only with two point to point lines as were the original railroads. The layout is operated using CVP Easy DCC. The scenery and structures are in various stages of completion with almost all trackwork done.
The layout is on the second story and there is an indoor flight of 14 steps.
Please enter through the left side gate. The entrance to the house is towards the rear.
