Sign Board
Working out of its home base in Beaver Bottom, Kentucky, the Elkhorn Northern Railroad provided Rail Services to Businesses in several towns around this isolated and mountainous area in the far southeastern tip of the Blue Grass State.
Description & History
Beaver Bottom was originally part of a home layout. When that layout was torn down, this diorama was saved and placed on an N-Trak module. Originally having only one main-line track, two additional tracks were added at the front to comply with N-Trak standards. The 2' Beaver Gap module was built to bring the left side back to N-Trak standards and to provide access to a set-up track behind the skyboard.

There really is a Beaver Bottom, KY and it was served by the Elkhorn Southern Railway which later became part of the Clinchfield, then the Seaboard Coast Line, Family Lines and finally CSX.
