Featured on many garden and garden railroad tours (including the Big Train Show), the Los Angeles Times Newspaper, Orange County Register, and Orange County Register Home Magazine, Todd and Linda Brody inaugurated the Tortoise and Lizard Bash G-scale Railroad in 1997. The 1,200 square foot layout includes approximately 600 feet of track and 21 turnouts to service various areas. Bridges and trestles abound; the longest of which is 14 feet in length with a height of 24 inches. A tunnel passes under the winery. A lake is fed from a running stream cascading over two waterfalls and there are active volcanoes and hot springs. More than two dozen structures are located on the pike. All structures are set for night lighting with night operations during open houses.
