The Lower Mill Pond

Visual elements for Sunset Hill’s Illiana Train Society “Bull Moose Line” Train Garden.
                                                          The Lower Mill Pond 

A Waterfall above the Upper Reflection Pond will send water splashing and gurgling down a trough of field stone into to the Lower Mill Pond.  As the water rises in the Lower Mill Pond a filtration  pump will recirculate 4,000 gallons of water per minute through a hidden piping system to the headwaters of the Water Fall above the Reflection Pond. This re-circulation will create a never ending downhill stream of water to the Lower Mill Pond basin.

That water feature is the heart of the garden railways design, giving the venue a stone covered background hill for the lower tracks to circle. 

In addition it offers the “Bull Moose Line” a unique right-of-way to travel over and under the cascading waters.

 Plus a pond large enough for G-scale boats.
