See map: Google Maps

Mike's HO scale railroad is based on the Sherman Hill Division, the most active division of the Union Pacific in the 1950s with a variety of steam engines, diesels and turbines.

The top level represents the long grade out of Cheyenne to the crest at Sherman station continuing to Hermosa Tunnel. A third line was added in 1953 with a lesser grade and is called the Harriman line.  It joins the two mainline tracks at Dale Junction.

The lower level represents a generic mid Nebraska town called Tecumsah. There is an agricultural industry area and a smaller town further west.

Scenery is about 80% completed on the layout. The outer room holds the staging tracks for Sherman above and Laramie below.
