Definitely the biggest display of model trains and railway systems we’ve ever seen. Really impressive that one man could collect everything rail including ticket stubs. Our son loved operating the model trains and having a go at being a train driver.

This is a nice museum of model railroads. There was a rather large crowd the day we went, I guess it was a school vacation day. Most of the more interesting models are close to "O" scale but there are some smaller and larger ones...More
