Magnificent bridges, viaducts, and a spectacular hand painted scenic backdrop are the hallmarks of this contest quality three-dimensional work of art.

Here’s what our client has to say . . . .

"Since installation in 2006, the layout has performed flawlessly, providing hours of enjoyable entertainment....Throughout the build and installation process, Mr. Hart and his team exhibited strong professionalism and attention to detail. ... A level of trust was established that created a comfortable working relationship and led to more than satisfactory results...The greatest compliment I can provide is that this endeavor was a focused and easy process, and frankly, quite enjoyable. I would highly recommend Mr. Hart and SMARTT for any model train project, and would choose him again were the opportunity to present itself."
