I have tried to assemble accurate information on the Montana Rail Link. I am not big on writing so most of what you will see will be a photographic record. I have been modeling in N-scale for over 25 years and have been rail-fanning the MRL for the last 20 years.

I started my most recent layout in April of 2008 and have documented the progress as much as possible along the way. I finally came up with a name for my layout which is the MRL Clark Fork Subdivision. It encompasses portions of the MRL from Helena to Thompson Falls. My layout is 23’ x 17’ and is being built in an insulated 2 car garage.

New update available. Backdrops and Valances are all completed.
