The 3/4" project is a is a complete rebuild of our 3/4 high-line for our guests at the 50th meet.  When the ILS was founded the first track was the 3/4" which you can see in our history section.  Our 3/4" uses 1/2" rail and is dual-gauged for both 3/4" and G operation.  We are looking forward to being part of the renewed interest in these smaller scales which offer all the fun of live steam with a lower cost and a more manageable size.

What goes around comes around when it comes to 3/4" track at the ILS.   The stringers are all in place and the track is being leveled and aligned  Now the only question remaining is who gets the first run!!
