The Green Mountain Railroad is loosely based on the Bellows Falls Subdivision of the Vermont Rail System and the Rutland Railway. The layout is set in the time period extending from the 1960s to the present and depicts the late summer / early fall season. 

Configured as a point-to-point with a loop, the main line is 106' long. The main yard is at Rutland, VT with a secondary yard at North Walpole, NH with local switching between the yards. Structures are a mix of kits, both kit-bashed and scratchbuilt, including four scratchbuilt bridges. Twenty-five industries are served on the railroad. Scenery is 95% complete.

Motive power is a mix of RS-1, RS-3, GP-38 and GP-40 locomotives. All locomotives are sound equipped. Rolling stock is assorted freight cars plus a few passenger cars. Train power and control are provided by a NCE DCC system with wireless throttles. Operation control is by signals controlled by a CTC panel. JMRI controls the turnouts on the main line.

Operation is with switch lists and verbal train orders. An operating session can accomodate up to eight operators.
