The HO scale Gulf Lines is a model of the Santa Fe Railroad in Dallas in 1960. Actual Santa Fe plans are being used faithfully to depict the railroad and all its track work from mile post 44 in Oak Cliff, through East Dallas Yard, to mile post 53.4 near the Texas State Fair Grounds. Selective compression will reduce this mainline to approximately 250 feet or four scale miles.
Wide aisles, a comfortable crew lounge, and three large staging yards representing Cleburne, Gainesville, and Dallas Union Terminal will make it possible to host operating sessions for twelve or more guests. All main line track work and most sidings and spurs are complete from the Cleburne staging yard through East Dallas Yard. Operations on the first portion of the railroad began in February, 2011.
