We took our grandson here last week. It is a large and really nice layout. They have a large membership that is always available to answer questions. A must see when in town.

This is a worth a stop if you like trains. Twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the men in town run their trains. They have the large outdoor display of "G" size and inside was HO size. It is really quite a set up...More
