The Boise, Nampa & Owyhee Railroad

Serving the Idaho towns of Idaho City, Boise, Meridian, Nampa and Murphy

Modeled in HO scale

 It's the 1890's and there are truss rods as far as the eye can see!  All the Ladies are in long dresses, all the gents
are in suits and everyone is wearing a fashionable hat.

This layout was built with operation in mind and is truly a delight to operate.
It features standard and narrow gauge steam and electric freight
and steam and electric passenger operation.

Operation is done with Ship-It for everything except the narrow gauge mining
section which is done with car cards.
