Contains a variety of model train gauges (scaled-sizes), complete with realistic scenery to match the train gauges. I've been by myself, with my wife, with friends visiting and with my grandchildren...its truly an experience for multiple-age groups also.

Model railroading seems to be fading in our society. These folks make it fun again. Take the time and put down your electronic devices and visit this place. Talk to the folks there and learn something you probably didn't know before.....
