The Layout is one of the Nation's largest operating indoor G-Gauge layouts depicting the 1930's to 1960's era of railroading. Aristocraft, LGB, USA, and Bachmann locomotives and rolling stock are used to comprise a variety of 14 continuously operating trains and trolleys. The train tracks traverse wilderness, mountainous, rural, and urban scenes, all in a space of approximately 4,000 square feet. The longest run is 960 feet. It enters and exits many of the layout's 32 tunnel portals, and in doing so, climbs a maximum grade of 3.75% to reach a height of eight feet, four inches thereby allowing it to pass overhead of the viewer(s). The 2200 feet of track and switches are Aristocraft. As with prototype operations, the museum's layout also has many obstacles that must be bridged. The layout boasts twenty-four bridges and trestles spanning as much as 15 feet. Most of the bridges and trestles have been scratch built.

Garden City is the major urban center on the layout. Logging, coal mining, manufacturing, and railroading are the leading economic activities that support the city and its surrounding communities neatly nestled within three mountain ridges. Mountain scenery reaching twelve feet is hard-shell over lath. From within these mountains, over 12,000 gallons of water per hour cascade down three waterfalls. Two of the falls feed an approximate 300 square foot lake while the smaller of the falls feeds a major winding river.

Many items are hidden within the various scenes and it is up to the viewer to find and record them all on the scavenger hunt checklist sheet provided at the time of ticket purchase. Scavenger hunt check sheets will be entered into a monthly drawing wherein the randomly chosen winner will receive (or be sent) a valuable prize ($100 in value) from the gift shop.
