Visit our RS&W Model Railroad layout.

RS&W Railroad System Based on the Wisconsin Central Railroad Valley Sub. from Stevens Point, WI. to Wausau WI. in the 1990’s. 

The layout has two levels. The lower level is the local area, part of the Valley Sub. The upper level goes out west to the mountains and the coal mine. 

The levels are accessed by a helix that can be entered from Stevens Point or Wausau and goes up to Denver.
