The staging yard, located on the lowest level of the railroad, represents the portion of the world that is not modeled. All
industries and all cities not on the modeled portion of the railroad are contained in staging. In theatrical terms, staging
is “back stage”. The players (trains) enter and exit the modeled portion of the railroad via the staging yard. The
staging yard is reached from either Galveston or Castle Rock on the middle operating level via a double track helix.
There are eight 35 foot staging tacks each of which can support one or two complete trains. A ninth arrival track runs
down the middle of staging to a reversing loop at the far end where arriving trains can be directed to their appropriate
track in preparation for their next appearance on the modeled portion of the railroad.
