Sunset Hill's Illiana Train Society Building Program.

Unlike typical railroad G-scale modelers who construct their layout from the ground up, the Society's Building Committee chose to collect donations to employ outside construction firms to move the “Bull Moose Line” venue from the Samuelson Greenhouse property to Sunset Hill Farm Park.


The Society Building Commettie: Lance Molenda, Owen Todd, George Sarver, Dave Ransom , Dave Casey, Gary Barneko

The move began in October 14, 2017 
when the Building Committee Members staked out the parameters of the propoed I T S Garden layout 
on the east side of Sunset Hill Farm 
above the septic field.

In May of  2018 the Building Committee initiated a ground breaking ceremony 

celebrating the move of the "Bull Moose Line" 
from the Samuelson Greenhouse property 
to Sunset Hill Farm.

The Sunset Hill Farm County Park ground maintenance crew 
removed sod for 
the "Bull Moose Line" layout placement in July of 2018.

Unfortunately little progress has been made. 
A stripped patch of bare dirt above the septic field on the east side of Sunset Hill Farm Park 
is the culmination of fourteen months of diligent work by the
 members of the Building Committee. 

Now the first winter snow of 2018 covers the septic field awaiting the eventual spring thaw to see what the members 

of the Society Building Committee 
have in mind for
