Old 99 is a Toys and Joys plan. There is an 18 part blog describing the building sequence I used.
It is 29” long, 8” high, and 6” wide. The wood used is Black Walnut and Maple. The track is 1 1/2” high and 2 sections of 18”, Oak bed, Black Walnut ties and Maple rails. The third picture is the home that they finally found.
