The current version of the Southwest Torrance Limited Garden Railroad has been in development since late 2009. The layout packs a lot of action in a quite restricted backyard setting.  There is about 150 feet of G-gauge track in a folded dog-bone configuration. The Southwest Torrance Limited features two tunnels, over 20 feet of scratch-built trestles, two grade crossings and fully automatic operations using up to three separate trains. The layout is track powered and uses analog control.

Landscaping on the Southwest Torrance Limited is an on-going project; many miniature plants grow beneath three full-scale trees. Structures on the railroad represent American buildings from the early to mid-20th century, and they are a mixture of custom-built and kits. Most structures are lighted, and addition spotlights provide ample lighting for nighttime operations.
