Trestle Gets a Refresh

Mother Nature presents G scale enthusiasts with a unique set of challenges as compared to other forms of model railroading. The Fairplex Garden Railroad must endure through weather, nightly varmint attacks and a high volume of visitor traffic during the L.A. County Fair.

One of the top priorities is keeping the main line running, and that means track and trestle maintenance.
