Kristenville & Michelleville Railroad
Alan Anderson’s Kristenville & Michelleville Railroad
(HO scale) started in early 1977 with some elements of a prior
layout. Designed as a freelanced, 1920’s era steam powered
railroad, it serves the limestone quarries and Al’s Brewery, each
located on the outskirts of Kristenville. The Board of Directors
recognized the potential for some logging business and extended the
line into the mountains. The Kristenville Yard was expanded to
its present capabilities. Alantown boomed with the expanded yard
and the K-M Sawmill Co. and the K-M Lumbering Co. The small
Michelleville Railroad near Passwater Interchange was struggling
financially and became incorporated into the KMRR.
The layout is fully scenicked and operates with a unique radio-controlled, DC block system.
