The Arborway, TT & Northwestern Railroad

The Arborway, TT & Northwestern Railroad in Steeleville, Missouri

          Located in Steelville, Missouri the privately owned Arborway, TT & Northwestern Railroad is on a scale like no other. John Woods graciously opened the ATT&NW RR for the 2007 Grand Scales miniature railroad convention held September 14-16, 2007. The 325 rail enthusiasts who attended the 3 day event were treated to the awe inspiring accomplishment that is the ATT&NW RR.

          The right-of-way on the ATT&NW RR is more than 5 miles long, much of it with double track. Even more amazing is they are calling this "phase 1" of the railroad. The beautiful 801 steam engine built by Darrell Klompmaker is just one of several engines on the ATT&NW RR that features more than 30 other pieces of rolling stock. During the grand scales convention several visiting 15" gauge engines were also running on this impressive railroad and many can be seen in our photographs.
