October 22: Powder Springs, GA: Powder Springs Model Railroad Joins 'Pilgrimage'

From Powder Springs Patch: Powder Springs Model Railroad Joins 'Pilgrimage'
Powder Springs own “For the Birds Railroad”—FTB RR for short—will be joining this year’s Piedmont Pilgrimage, a free annual tour of Georgia model trains.

Throughout October and November, those who have the systems set up inside or outside their houses will welcome anyone interested in watching their trains chug along. The event is organized by the Piedmont Division of the National Model Railroad Association.

Each railroad has a specific time for accepting visitors. FTB RR, the only representative from Powder Springs, will be open on Oct. 22 from 1 to 5 p.m.

It’s located at 3290 Country Walk Drive and is operated by Ra and Barbara Barr.

“We’ve spruced it up a little bit, and we’ve added a few things,” Barbara said. “So we’re excited for people to come see it.”

Barr said anyone inside Powder Springs and out is welcome to come see the couple’s miniature locomotives during the tour.

Since Patch put together the attached video in June, Barr said she’s added a schoolhouse, playground, coffee shop, and cemetery with a church in the town the train goes around.
