#3 Figure Eight Over And Under Track

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

                                             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.
