It's been years since I have been here. Took the family for the first time November 9. Everyone loved it. It is small, but there is so much detail you could spend about an hour or so easy. If you have never seen it before, it's worth the stop.

From the little kids to the adults...we all enjoyed this beautiful display. I have been visiting the area for years and liked to see much of the attractions in miniature.

I saw the youtube video for this place but its some much better in person. The details that went into building this attraction is just amazing and I'm glad I came. I will be back in a couple of months with the grand kids.

Very fun to visit. Lots of neat little "things" like real water (on an indoor model railroad), moving cars and people. Just wish they changed the trains around every once and awhile.

You will spend over an hour here enjoying a miniature train layout representing the entire county. You will see parades, trolleys, even a house on fire. Cheap.

This was our second trip. My son (6) loves to stop here! My daughter (8), husband and I enjoy it, too. We feel it's a little pricey for an adult ticket. Look for a coupon. The cashier is a bit grumpy, just like last year. I don't understand that for such a family friendly place. For these two reasons, I... More

Don't get me wrong the display is amazing, and you get a paper with all clues to look for, but the size is a little deceiving as you enter it is dim and there are mirrors on the back wall, so it appears bigger then what it actually is. I just think considering all the people in and out of... More

We loved it! So much automation! Different types of scenes. Lots of different types of trains running. We spent a couple of hours there at least and we did not have kids with us! Highly recommended for train and miniature buffs.

This is a nice family stop for everyone. The layout has so many this it see that it would take hours to see it all. Every thing is at just the right height for little ones.

This is a wonderful way to spend an hour or two. It's fun for all ages, but not particularly stroller friendly, due to the small walking area. It's an ever-changing piece delightful labor of love by some gifted people who recreate scenes from Lancaster County and surrounding areas. Multiple trains run through tunnels, past baseball games, farmland with figures in... More
