The layout is built in a space between a residence and boat house on the side of a lake. In order to utilize the tight space two crosses were utilized to keep track radii long.
There is a pathway for visitors through the layout on the left side of this diagram. In 2012 a new water feature creek and sluiceway were addend. There are now three operating rivers on the layout.
For ease of operation the layout was designed to allow three separate trains to travel a loop separately without switching while also allowing one train to circuit all three loops continuously. There are eight bridges in the layout which is a little over 400 feet in track length.
