Kids love trains. Family friendly grounds with plenty to see. The railroad is amazing and it has a fantastic story.

We are not really model railroad people, but this was a pleasant surprise. The amount of time and effort put into this hobby is staggering. We were really impressed-great place to take kids (young or old).

Wanted to go see very badly, but the phone number was disconnected. We could not find a different one for them. Does anyone know if they are still there or the correct number?

Volunteers really get into helping visitors learn about model trains. The miniature scenes are terrific--mountains and cities. Kids love this--but so do adults. Hours are limited so check before going.

Very Nice HO scale train layout and they seem to be expanding. Lots of details to see. A little hard to find as you have to go into the supermarket, call them on a phone and then they come get you in an elevator. There is another great N scale train layout in Vista at the Gas and Steam engine... More

Good layout. Lots to check out. Friendly staff. Have to go above the grocery store to find it, but worth it.

In this age of iPhones, internet and other technology to keep our kids from experiencing history, this is a great place to explore. From the model railroad buffs, who are happy to spin some tales and info to those just standing around in awe, you will enjoy the visit.

Any kid or 70 year old 'KID', like me (who lived and loved Trains for my whole life; and my kids lives) will Love and Remember this Adventure. The RR Society Members, young and old, are extremely Friendly, Knowledgeable, and Motivated to provide all who enter their Wonder World ... a marvelous Experience.

This is a great model railroad with good operations. Website is http://www.ncmrs.org. The main restriction are the hours which are 10 to 2 on Saturday and 3 to 6 on Thursday. However, one can plan and easily enjoy the operation. The layout is on the 2nd floor of a grocery store. There is an elevator and you call on the... More
