Three Years and Counting...
In 2017 the Porter County Parks Department agreed to host the Illiana Train Society and a locastion was chosen on the east side of Sunset Hill County Park for the Train Garden Venue
The Building Commettie formaly broke ground for the Train Garden venue
in the Spring of 2018.
Unlike typical railroad G-scale modelers who construct their layout from the ground up, The Sunset Hill’s Illiana Train Society's Relocation Committee began collecting $52,000.00 in donations to employ outside contractors to rebuild the
“Bull Moose Line”
The relocation group managed to tear down the original "Bull Moose Line" layout at Samuelsons Greenhouse in the fall of 2018 and then transport the dregs to the Sunset Hill site.
The Porter County Park District provided assistance
to build the railroad garden when equipment and staff where available
