What you will see is a work of love by many people who contributed their skills over many years to build this magnificent model railroad. Several trains run through tracks that depict many of Georgia´s landmarks, each build with amazing detail. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the visit. Check webpage for dates and times as it does not open... More

We enjoyed the actual train models. We did not enjoy the boring DVD we had to watch in the mildew smelling basement before we were allowed to go in.

As others have stated, this is the most amazing train layout I have ever seen. It is not only huge, but it is beautifully detailed, in a rather whimsical way. There is a sailing ship (like a Spanish galleon) in the "river" near Tallulah Gorge, which just makes me laugh, but I can see others scratching their heads and saying... More

What a great model railroad display here. Lots of work went into this hometown attraction tucked away just south of town. Take the grand kids and enjoy.

Our family visited during our family reunion in the area. We were pleasantly surprised to see all the creativity and time put into the cleverly built model trains. I could probably visiting several times and never see all of the details.

My two sons, ages 7 and 5, are obsessed with trains, so we had to make a stop by this model railroad on our recent trip to North GA. It was incredible! I'm not much of a train fan, but the detail and time that went into this project is truly astonishing, and I was blown away. There is a... More

This is a model train lover's paradise. One man spent 15 of his retirement years constructing everything he loved about this corner of Georgia - and stretched it a little to include Atlanta and even bits of North Carolina. Be sure to arrive by 1:30 PM for the introductory movie describing the process of putting this unique bunch of scenery,... More

The guys that built this model rr have done a wonderful job. The history that Charles gives beforehand is very interesting. I live in the area and enjoy taking visitors here. They all come away with a wonderful experience.

Great presentation, display, novelty/detail of panorama.. even gave us more history of the area... (only downside: "donation" was actually REQUIRED for entrance -- minimal amt, but not the usual definition of the word )

Took my 9 year old grandchild. I thought he would be amused, but instead he was mesmorized! It was pouring the day we went there, and going up the mountain roads were frightening, but the ride was well worth it. It is only open four days a week at 2 o'clock and the cost is $5.00 for adults and children... More
