Vulcan Forge Short Line Railroad & Papillon Gardens is a combination of my long time interest in live steam railroading and my wifes' love of perennial gardening, butterflies and Papillons.  The railroad operates on 15" gauge track with a Shay locomotive and rolling stock modeled to 5" to the foot scale.  A portion of track winds in and out of one side of the gardens, passing through a 16 foot long arbor then into a curved 30 foot long 'tunnel' formed by multicolored butterfly bushes on one side of the right-of-way and 15 foot tall ornamental grasses on the other.

The name Vulcan Forge is taken from our metalsmith studio of the same name.   This facility is used for making everything from car grab rails, edged weapons to commissioned art pieces, for the last thirty years.

Papillon is the French word for butterfly as well as a small dog breed.   The gardens have an abundance of various butterflies and is also the part time habitat for our four Papillon dogs.

Please feel free to email my wife, Jan, about gardening in general, seed and plant exchange as well as anything regarding the Papillon breed.

I enjoy working with others on their particular hobby that falls somewhere within my little circle of knowledge. Any questions are welcome, whether about what is on this site or your own projects.
