There is all sorts of old RR equipment scattered around the place. A 44 tonner and some 30' flatcars, plus some stacks of pink foam  :drool:

Don't know of it personally, but Fletcher Granite Company evidently offers train rides: http://www.fletchergranite.com/

A very cool looking place, and definitely model-worthy.

No time to watch the whole thing right now, but that opening scene is a real eye catcher. nhrrman has some great video's, and here is one more!

Hopefully the switch isn't aligned to the diverging route when you reach that pit.   :scared:

I was thinking the same thing.  Looks like a need for a Scobby Doo-esque "Track out Ahead" sign. :D

The whole thing looks like a cool On30 layout!

Looks to me like the switch has been removed and there is just a short piece of the diverging track left floating with no connections on either side.

Very cool, thanks for sharing.   It would make for a really neat model railroad, but the video itself is just really fun to watch.

This quarry has been going for quite a long time. It's just off the B&M's freight main. They bought a couple of used B&M 0-6-0s at one point, this is where #410 was recovered from before it's restoration.
