Details:

If you haven’t been before, you will be amazed at his garden railroad snaking through mountains, model villages, waterfalls, creeks, ponds, deep canyons, tunnels and massive bridges. Chris’ five model trains represent a transitional period in railroad history when steam locomotives were being phased out by first-generation diesel engines in the 1950’s. Each year, Chris expands his model railroad, adding more plants, landscape and track to his layout for the enjoyment of all.

Cross over the tracks and step into Chris’ greenhouse. Take a stroll through the Amazon Jungle. Beautiful orchids and tropical plants cascade down trees and walls, transporting you to another time and place. “There is truly nothing like this in the Eastern Plumas County and upper Feather River Canyon region,” says Chris. Visitors to his huge gardens and greenhouse are enthralled at what they see, and return year after year. 

Finally, you are invited into Chris’ home to enjoy his railroad artifact museum, packed with beautifully displayed railroad memorabilia.
