I was shocked at how large the basement area train was! And what detail! I enjoyed the little “can you find” signs... made things even more fun. Unfortunately the train wasn’t running... even if you pay the dollar.

We were out walking in town and saw a sign for this in the shop window. Went downstairs and was totally amazed by the model train layout this club has built, maintains and runs. Very, very nice!! Worth a visit for sure.

Visited this train room today. In the basement of a t-shirt shop. Really cool, someone has spent a lifetime building this thing.

We had to stop here, as some of our friends had never seen the model trains. They were impressed. Cost went up a bit from the last time we were here. It's now $1.00 for 10 minutes to see the trains run. However that's still...More
