We visited with the whole family. This is a small but unique attraction for children and train aficionados. We plan to go back every year in this down-to-earth venue and see what the owners have built over the year.

My toddler loved it! Anyone, any age can ride for a small donation. It seems to be a great idea for the little ones and even small children. Highly recommended!

A great time riding on the mini train through the woods. The kids love riding and looking at all the fun, creative characters and buildings the volunteers have created.

We love to ride the trains at least a couple times a year. The enthusiastic volunteers there are continually making improvements and are great with the kids.

Run by volunteer train hobbyists, these miniature trains are great fun for younger kids. For Grandpa (me), it was fun to watch the faces of my grandkids, especially as they discovered the surprises along the ride.
