The BNSF Fall River Division is a prototype based freelance model railroad of the BNSF Railway. Scenes on the layout are representative of cities, industries, lifestyle, and scenery found primarily in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest. The era of the layout is considered “modern” as the details, structures and equipment are typical of what may have been found along the railroad between the year 2007 and the present time.
Construction on the BNSF Fall River Division began in January of 2007. The layout is located in a 3,000 square foot area, specifically designed for the railroad. The layout is a multi-level “mushroom” design, with only one deck visible at any time. Trains move between decks through helixes located throughout the railroad, as well as a 1.8% ruling visible grade between Sage and Kimber. Aisle widths are generally between 36 and 48 inches, to comfortably accommodate a large number of operators and visitors.
