Kid's Operating Layout

The Kid's Operating Layout is a project of the Piedmont Division to provide an opportunity for young kids to run trains. It is designed with kids in mind with everything at their eye level. It has 3 trains which are run, usually at mach speed, by the kids. Many of these trains remind us of the ones we had as a kid. In addition to the trains, many operating accessories are located around the layout. Kids can operate these by pushing a button. Bring your camera and capture the joy of your child running a train!

Whistles blow, crossing gates close and you play with it!

The layout is scheduled for display at all of our train shows and has appeared during Christmas at the Swan House and our conventions. This layout is available for operation at events by contacting the Piedmont Division. The layout roughly measures 10' by 10' and breaks down into sections for easy transportation. If you would like to see your unused train cars and accessories put to a good use, donate them to the Piedmont Division.
