A very unique home and railroad is now available to the discriminating rail fan. A crown jewel in the heart of the beautiful, cool, serene, Blue Ridge Mountains of northwest North Carolina, nestled among thousands of acres of forest with abundant wild life. An electronic entrance gate assures you more privacy.

The totally remodeled, furnished, five bedroom, 3 bath home (plus office), has two kitchens with all new cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances (second kitchen is in the basement with additional dining area, as well as video and DVD viewing area). Your typical morning might begin on the beautiful 12x25' deck having coffee while overlooking the scenic railroad.

The work shop has seven storage tracks with work bench for your 7.5 gauge equipment, a wood shop with radial arm saw, jointer planer, drill press, welder, generator, lawnmower, grinder, miscellaneous tools, lots of storage and baseboard heating. Two double car carports will shelter your vehicles (one covers the loading / unloading area with the hydraulic lift).

The railroad, (30 yrs. in the making) consists of 2,500' of mainline track (5,000' round trip), 5 passing tracks, 5 trestles, (one is over 12' high), a 32' steel bridge, and a tunnel under the driveway. The bi-directional track has a signal system with crossing lights and bells. There is also a beautiful station with both waiting room and restroom, and an engine house for the neighbor's equipment storage. Another scenic station greets you at the half way point. The track will challenge you with up to 4% grades in some spots.

Nearby cities include Boone, Wilkesboro, and Jefferson with wonderful restaurants and shopping. Airports are located in nearby Charlotte and Greensboro.

Approximately 200 feet of track is on a neighbor's property, who will grant you operating rights in return for yours.
