While we build our rolling stock, buildings and other items needed for a permanent layout, Kingman Canyon Railroad is currently located at a private home. Visits are limited to invitations sent out for specific times or by special arrangements. Drop in's are not welcome.
About Our Permanent Layout
The fictional history of the displays planned for our permanent location have two distinct areas.
The first is a time-line of railroading depicted by segments.
Industrial revolution 1810 - 1850
Settlement of the West 1850 - 1890
Civil War and Reconstruction 1861 -1877
1900 to 1930
World War II 1939 -1945
The second distinct area will be a depiction of historic Route 66 starting at Chicago and ending in Santa Monica.
People interested in building displays are needed and professional artists are encouraged to join us. Your artistic expertise can make the backgrounds come alive by painting the scenery and constructing many of the landscape details. Carpentry skills, electrical experienced, landscaping professionals and masonry knowledge is needed.
Kingman Canyon Railroad volunteers operate and maintain the G-scale model trains and exhibit. Your volunteering gives you hands-on experience with G-Scale trains.
