The Sandy Creek was built and operated by Bob Burke of Appomattox, Virginia. It was a folded dogbone with 180 feet of mainline occupying 700 square feet in a full basement. Bob used "Ship It" software to control the routing of the cars. This layout was dismantled in November 2006 when Bob sold his house and built a new one on the adjacent lot. The new and improved 1100 square foot Sandy Creek is now under constrcution at this new location.
