The Scenic Subdivision is part of the current BNSF Railroad system in the Cascade Mountain range in Washington state. This beautiful area earns its name as it is truly scenic, drawing rail fans from around the world to come take photos. This project will showcase the buildout of mountain scenery including the famous Gaynor Trestle, Gaynor Tunnel and the longest tunnel in the U.S., the 7.8 mile long Cascade Tunnel. The goal is to research and build out a few prototype real life iconic railfan scenes featuring rivers/creeks, lots of pine trees, mountain terrain and scenery, a large viaduct, a couple of tunnels and more. Full details on the area being modeled can be found in the Introduction piece below. All of our updates are listed below in chronological order as they happen.  If you have any questions, we have set up a discussion forum topic for this project HERE where you can make comments, ask questions and get virtually involved in the project.

Hope you enjoy it!
