Stow Creek  
Andrew Eastabrook On30 gauge 7mm scale

Somewhere in the south west of Texas soon after the turn of the 20th century, the railway exists to haul block stone from the distant quarry to the railhead for trans-shipment onto barges for passage downstream when the creek is running. This isn't very often and the loading derrick is a bit temperamental needing nerves of steel and a manual dexterity lacking in most to operate - activity is therefore erratic at best.

The railway has very limited resources and even less business and it shows in the general decrepitude of the operation.
