The Grand Kay and Bonneville is a fictional shortline on the plains of Nebraska, serving the farmers' grain coop in Friend (pop. 850). Commonly called "The Granny Kay and Bonnie," the line traveled east into Lincoln to interchange with the mainline. Later trackage rights also allowed the GK&B to travel across Iowa to Chicago and into southwest Missouri.
This track plan was originally published in Kalmbach's Great Model Railroads 2002 as A small slice of the Pennsy, and is presented here in basically the same configuration using KATO UNITRACK. The spur track in the upper right hand corner could be used "to connect to Lincoln and other points east." This layout could be easily expanded to a double track operation with the use of our R282 curve.
