“Very interesting and well-done model railroad village of buildings in the N. Ga. mountains.”

“Must see”
The largest privately-owned O-guage Train display: 14 trains travel over a mile of track in a 4,000 sq ft layout that is a fantasy journey in Southern Apalachia mountains. Absolutely unbelievable!

Had passed this place several times, but never stopped until recommended by a friend. If you're a Georgia native, you must see the historic buildings, mountains, and canyons built into the exhibit.

It's been several years since I've been here but it is definitely an unforgettable place. It's just amazing all the time and detail put into the scenery and trains. Definitely worth a visit and will go back again. Really cool!

Amazing to see the craftsmanship. Very realistic landscaping, buildings and trains. Well off the beaten path but well worth the effort to get there.

I believe this is the largest model railroad in the country and it was built by a father-son team, originally with no thought to share with the public. This is one of the greatest attractions around. There is a $5 charge for adults and kids...More
