The portable module layout is 30 ft x 20 ft and has two tracks running electric, battery-powered steam and diesel, and live steam locomotives.  The smell of hot steam oil and puffs of live steam add to the realism of this model railroad.  The trains consist of flat cars, hopper cars, box cars, tank cars, heavyweight passenger cars, and cabooses.  Some of these cars have internal lighting.  The electric locomotives produce realistic operating sounds.
