Paradise Railroad
(12", LaPorte, Indiana)




Red Coates and son Kenny take the Shay over "Tehachapi Loop"




The "inspection cars" on the Paradise RR are thrilling to say the least.



The new trestle is almost certainly a world record for 12" gauge.
It is 477' long and three stories high in some spots.



This engine came from Dick Thiriot's Midway Short Line in Midway, Utah, and is still lettered for that railroad.




This caboose is plenty large for 12" gauge. There's room for at least two passengers.



This is probably the smallest bridge on the PRR.
