Comments/Directions:
The 7.5" gauge, member owned, Canton, Saint Paul & Pacific Railway is located on 12 heavily wooded acres nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and very near the downtown district of Canton, GA. The recently completed mile long mainline includes three tunnels, two large timber trestles, several smaller bridges, and offers spectacular views of the Etowah River Valley. The line climbs 35 feet in elevation through heavily wooded mountainous territory. The ruling grade, eastbound between Sargent and St. Paul, is 2 percent on a 60' radius curve. All operations are bi-directional. Passing tracks, radio dispatching and industrial sidings insure that every trip is interesting, different, and sometimes challenging. The roundhouse with elevated bays, machine shop, and ample water tanks along the line make the CStP&P a very "Steam Friendly" railroad. Growth is continuing with additional yard trackage and new industries being planned and built.
