Backyard Railroads  

The Crysta Springs Railroad


  The Crystal Springs Railroad

Join Jack Verducci as he takes you on a ride of the Crystal Springs Railroad. See nothing but live steam run through the garden and listen to Jack as he goes systematically through the steam up procedure. Learn how to operate your layout just like a real railroad. Use a dispatcher, engineers, maintenance people, mechanics and of course a chief. The Crystal Springs Railroad has over 700 feet of track and covers both the front and backyard. With over 80 custom built buildings, a working sawmill, waterfalls and streams, there is always something new to look at. Hear from Jack’s Crew as they talk about their job functions and see a Backyard Railroad that runs just like the real thing. See trains in the garden that run with a purpose, delivering freight and supplies all over the railroad. You have read his articles and book, now climb on board with Jack and experience a day on the Crystal Springs Railroad for yourself. The boiler is hot and the train is fully loaded….all aboard!
