Good museum for kids and a nice break from the heat. Largest working model train track I've ever seen. Said they've been working on track for over 20 years! Lots of great history here.

Nice place. It's immediately right next to the train track. Parking is in the back. Easily spend 30" there. Take a miniature train ride at Landa park afterwards.

Actual steam engine, caboose, boxcar, and passenger car converted into a dining car. Also a large HO gauge model train display. Many historical RR artifacts. Well worth the stop.
