The RW&F is a fictional road that operates in the Southern Oregon Cascades. It transfers freight from one side of the mountains to the other, connecting two main lines. The RW&F favors Santa Fe power but has been known to borrow from others. This short line is home to a lumber company that transports logs to the mill and the lumber out to the main lines. The small town of Woodville sees lots of rail traffic.
Started in 2008, this is the second generation layout now with a little over 100 feet of main line. Expansion has just started to expand up into the woods to a logging show that will boast its own engine to spot cars. Empties will be hauled to the sight for loading of the logs from the forest near by. Hopefully this new addition will be operational by tour time. All power is battery with the Revo system. Come enjoy the scene.

Open for tour on Monday, 2 September, 2019, 8AM to 5PM.
Handicapped access is questionable. Flat, slight slope and graveled. No restroom facilities.
