A nice collection of antique and more modern model trains. Quite a selection of Lionel trains from over the years.

The museum has many displays using the trains in different settings (Christmas village, city and urban sets). Also has a lot of antique engines and rail cars on displays in cases. Enjoyed this very much. Would recommend it to families with kids.
