The J & W Railroad in Santa Maria, California is one of the longest, continuous operating garden railroads on the central coast.
Operators and guests can surround themselves with action, as multiple trains operate around the lawn and patio. Storage yards protected from the elements are strategically placed allowing quick start-up and closing.
This garden railroad consists of three separate loops, two of which have reversing capability and two have one siding each. The three loops are interconnected and have access to a “rail yard” and to two separate storage areas: an indoor patio and an outdoor shed. The layout is DCC powered.
