While I was doing a search on youtube, I found a person that has some video from this railroad. I found it to be nice to finally see one of my friends railroad's who I have not seen or talked to for awhile. I can remember when this railroad was started and it is amazing to see how it grew to what it is today. Below are two links to 2 different video's from this backyard railroad.

Your Welcome Jim. I am glad I could help out and show other people that model railroading is carried into bigger scale.

You're coofroosin me. I think you are getting scale and gauge mixed up. Scale is what size you are modeling. Gauge is the actual distance between the rails. So, I guess you are saying 7 1/2" gauge track? That's pretty big.

Simply outstanding, Matthew. What gauge track is that?

Rob the scale of the track is 7-1/2 but runs 1-1/2 scale trains on it.

More pictures to follow later on.  Got to find the pictures of the railroad when it was completed.
