8 B&B RR Depot - Bed & Breakfast and Live Steam RR
This gem is one of the reasons why a comprehensive railfan guide is needed for any almost every area. If you aren't a fan of bed and breakfasts' and/or live steam, chances are you don't know about this place. I stumbled on it by mistake while following the roads of Toledo on www.bing.com/maps for this guide.
The B&B is run by Nate and Linda Brinkman. Their phone number is 888-690-7137. The address is 5331 Cedar Point Road Oregon, Ohio 43616 in case you want to plug it into your GPS.
Their endeavor started when Nate bought a 1/8 scale B&M steamer in 2001 and asked his wife if he could build a track around their house to go with it. A year later Linda decided to expand their home and offer a B&B to go along with it. Nate has even provided a transfer table so you can bring your own 1/8 engine and run it. More info on their website at: http://www.bbrailroad.com/ . The picture at the bottom is from their website.
The pictures of the bridges are presented here are more for reference and historical purposes than anything practical :-)
