We got some wonderful customer feedback that we thought we'd share with you:
"I received the backdrop last week. I just opened it. I have been very busy at work so I did not get a chance to do so when it arrived. It looks amazing. I wanted to again thank you for all the work you put into this project. It shows to me how much you care about what you do. I just felt you should know this. I will send you some nice photos once I am done with this addition. Again, thank you.
Sorry this one is a couple of days late.
March 8, 1904 Lucin Cutoff opened across the Great Salt Lake in Utah. This was an overland railroad track that went across the Great Salt Lake.
March 1, 1881: Connection between Southern Pacific and Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe at Deming, New Mexico, forming the second transcontinental route. Southern Pacific Southern Division trackage, in Southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico, was leased to Centeral Pacific for operation during this time period.
February 22, 1856: Sacramento Valley Railroad completed from Sacramento to Folsom.
"At 11 am on Washington’s Birthday, the Sacramento Valley Railroad inaugurates service to Folsom, as the locomotive “Sacramento” with a string of passenger and flat cars in tow leaves “Old” Sacramento’s Front Street and heads up the tracks of R Street. It is soon followed by the “Nevada,” which breaks down before covering the full 22.9 miles to Folsom. But the politicians and local citizenry from both locomotives eventually arrive at Folsom’s Meredith Hotel where they enjoy a “Railroad Ball” that lasts until the next morning. While the Sacramento Valley Railroad incorporates on August 4, 1852, making it the first railroad west of the Mississippi, the Arcata and Mad River Railroad becomes operational sooner on December 15, 1854. The business plan calls for the Sacramento Valley Railroad to run through Folsom up to Marysville but construction costs are 50 percent more than anticipated so the line terminates at Folsom. The railroad’s chief engineer is Theodore Judah, a railroad engineer from New York, who later holds the same job with the Central Pacific Railroad and is one of the early advocates of running track up and through the Sierra Nevada to create a transcontinental railroad. Judah doesn’t live to see it happen, dying of yellow fever in November 1863, which he contracts in Panama returning to New York from California." -Friends of the California Archives

I've been a train junkie all my life... from the first Athearn tank car my dad bought me when I was about 4 to a full 14x16 foot HO layout in my barn, an ON30 layout in my office, an N gauge layout and I just started on a Z gauge.. I've been hooked all my days.
