Welcome to the Altamont and Blue Ridge Railway website. Here you will find an in-depth look at my now defunct miniature model railroad, which I began in 2008 and demolished in 2017 to make way for the much larger A&BR2.

 I have included lots of pictures of the 12’x21’ N-scale layout for everyone, as well as information relating to train-room construction, scenery-building techniques, layout wiring, and computer control for beginners and old-pros alike.

Enjoy your visit,
     Pete Caldwell
