The Mountain Division models trackage from a large hidden staging yard at Roseville to Truckee over Donner Summit. Many distinctive features along the route have been accurately modelled as the line rises to a height of some 12 physical feet above the public walkway, from Auburn through Colfax and on over the summit to the large hidden staging yard at Truckee. Notable features are Long Ravine bridge (surrounding area under construction), the Chinese Wall and several tunnels and snowsheds. A logging line is under construction that will automatically sequence a loaded and empty train of log cars up and down the line, powered by a 3-truck Shay.
Narrow Gauge trackage of the California and Nevada line can also be seen running through Auburn and then climbing up a hidden helix to the fruit sheds at Colfax and then back down to the narrow gauge yard.
