A friend is planning a similar arrangement to cross his driveway with 7 1/2 gauge track.

Having just turned 73 this month, I understand about that chair thing!

I picked those up at a local thrift shop for 10 bucks each.  Bountyland Railway does love a bargain.

Here I'm using the engine to show size.  Rail to top of cab is 4 feet.

Along with work on structure work, I am also building a coach which I hope to have in operation next season.
Here is the drawing from which I'm working.

I have a 3 way stub switch on my 7 1/2 gauge Sheepscot replica layout. 
I've often thought how effective it could be as a derail when approaching from the frog end but so far, I've managed to avoid going off the track!

I was just wondering what frog number this switch is.  Maybe someone has said but if so I missed it.

Thanks Stewart. Exactly what I needed to know.
Although I am quite a ways from applying paint it doesn't hurt to plan ahead. 
I admire the Museum for returning to the historically correct brown but I will likely will go with the green the car is now as that's the way I'm used to seeing it.

Our Bountyland Railway is currently building a replica of coach #3.  Can anyone tell me what color paint is used on the Museum's coaches.

I've edited one of Brendan's photos (Thanks Brendan) to better show the beauty of this location.
"Over the river and through the woods".... Such a PERFECT railway!

Splendid job, ALL.

Take away the construction machinery (don't you just love Photo Shop!) and we get a preview of just how photogenic this location will be!
