Since it opened last year my 3 year old grandson has been to Roads and Rails over 30 times and once there, never wants to leave! As a result of his experiences, he has already started with an HO gauge train of his own. A visit could last from about 30 minutes to well more than an hour. There are at least seven full trains running all the time, several others that are activated by motion detectors and about a dozen buttons activate other attractions, e.g., vans and trolleys traveling around a town, a tiny Z gauge train, a roller coaster and a volcano. Each time we go I see something new, too, in the creative layouts that are always changing and being improved. I am particularly impressed with details such as the traffic lights in the little town that are sequenced like the real thing. The guys there are always willing to answer questions about the layout, the process of model-building and about trains in general. So when you go, be sure to get one of them engaged in a conversation. Dave Burroughs, the owner, is especially willing to share his extensive international knowledge of trains, modeling and train history but all of the others will gladly stop and respond to queries of any kind. I highly recommend a visit to Roads and Rails for everyone from 2 to 92.
