Approximately 8' X 6' 90deg. corner.

Represents the large curve outside of Valley Mills, TX on the former Santa Fe (now BNSF) main line between Galveston and Fort Worth. This line was built by the Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe Railway in 1881. The curve lies between mileposts 258 and 259 (from Galveston), and runs through a deep cut in the central Texas limestone. It is single track, between the sidings of Valley Mills and Manhattan. State Highway 317 crosses the Northwest end of the curve and provides a scenic vantage point to photograph trains as they round the curve and emerge from the cut. Passenger trains such as Santa Fe's Texas Chief, and Amtrak's InterAmerican and Lone Star used this line. The line sees numerous grain trains during harvest time bound for Galveston, and several manifest freights each day. A number of unit coal trains also use the line, including the train to the Smithers Lake Power Plant (UFIX).
Model of Valley Mills, TX. prototype.
