Jim Carey’s Outdoor Railroad – Video Clip

ModelRailroadForums.com is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.


Here is a twelve minute video clip of Jim Carey’s outdoor railroad. Jim lives in La Tuna Canyon above Sun Valley, CA.

He has been working on this G scale layout for the past sixteen months. It features a Tehachapi loop in front yard, thirteen bridges, approximately one thousand feet of stainless steel track, air powered turn-outs, battery powered locomotives and CVP wireless control.

Turn up your volume for engine sounds.

I hope to have this railroad on a future layout tour.

I love garden railroads. It seems like such a great way to enjoy the hobby.

Is this the actor, or another Jim? I believe the actor spells his name with two Rs.

That is one impressive layout. The Landscaping, rocks, trees, shrubs, bridges, and track-work.... WOW ! Especially when I see that it is built INTO a hill. Must have cost a fortune to do all that. I see he has built big walls to retain the large hill. I have a similar problem but more extreme and could never afford those kind of retaining walls even if the City would EVER approve them. Just terracing part of my hill was a problem dealing with the City. (Too much government). I guess that's why people in America keep moving farther and farther from Cities.
Anyway this layout is beautiful.

That was cool as heck! I love it and hope to get into this scale one day. Lots of work to get it done but I'll get there.

Yep, Jim Carrey the actor lives in Malibu, not the desert. Thats what I thought when I saw the title of the thread.
