Howard Goodwin, MMR,'s Great Cypress Lines (HO)

The Great Cypress Lines is a mythical Class-II HO-scale railroad, born from Howard's fertile imagination. 

Designed for operations, it is a single-line railroad with several passing sidings, and it utilizes both Code-83 and Code-70 track, a significant portion of which is hand-laid. It is a point-to-point railroad serving as a bridge route to major railroads set in the transition-era Southeastern United States, but it also features continuous run. 

Scenery is rapidly being added, and there are many detailed scenes already completed. 

If you are interested in visiting Howard's Great Cypress Lines, contact the Piedmont Division Director of Operations at no later than 9pm, Friday, July 12.  You will receive directions to the layout.
