Thanks to Justin and Megan at High Country Small Engine Repair, Little Tweetsie Railroad is receiving some well needed attention, while I’m out of town. This will get her ready for a summer of steaming fun and you are invited to join us.
Some additions are coming to the track this summer and we hope you will join us for one of our steaming days.
The track radius is changing and one sharp curve is going to be changed to accommodate larger locomotives. Some larger engines have had trouble at the driveway turn and the new layout should allow for better turning for everyone with no derailments.
The second track and siding track will be added this summer.
An incomplete secondary track has been used as a siding for two years and we plan to complete this circuit so two trains can run at the same time. With proper timing, this will allow trains to travel in opposite directions and spring loaded switches will auto-direct each locomotive in the correct direction.
Finally, a siding will be added to park trains and cars not in use, without blocking the mainline.
Little Tweetsie Railroad is much like her full size counterpart, Tweetsie Railroad. Our track is small but we hope to offer a lot in a little package.
With an on-site cabin available from Banner Haven Bed and Breakfast, visitors have a place to stay, and the yard and fire pit make it a wonderful place to relax with your choice of sun or shade. A playground for smaller children offers something for all ages. The hot tub is close by and open all year.
We invite you to check out our host, www.BannerHavenBedAndBreakfast.com.
We also invite you to bring your parties, whether for young or old, to Little Tweetsie Railroad, in Banner Elk, NC. Not matter your age, let us host your next event or party.
