#3 Figure Eight Over And Under Track

Planned visual elements for Sunset Hill’s Illiana Train Society “Bull Moose Line”   

                                                                             #3
                                             Figure Eight Over And Under Track

                                                                        



At the heart of the garden railways design, the water feature gives the venue a stone hill for a figure eight track allowing trains to cross over the water via a compression  bridge, circle the upper reflection pond and then dive under the downhill stream through a tunnel to continue on around the lower mill pond. This visual effect provides the “Bull Moose Line” with a unique right-of-way  to travel over and under the cascading waters.
