“Great train store!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Love the owner and his massive train set that he has taken years to build! It's amazing and he is so full of knowledge and is a very sweet man.

“Model trains in the alps”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

There is an old German man, Mr Charlemagne and his wife who built a town and model trains that fits in a huge werehouse type building, total awesome. You can walk around it or above it and see what he has down for years building model trains and running them. A gift store is in the same building with books, model trains, gifts,games,etc. The kids would love this, and as a big kid I loved it. Its right on the main street of Helen, Ga. Bad thing is, that it is hard for the Handicap to move around as the place is crowded.

Great elderly couple have devoted years to making a scale model of the German countryside with models and h/o trains. Really enjoyed the details of his work.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Was not prepared for what we saw after we paid our $5.00. The most incredible model railroad we had ever seen! Hot air balloons, a two story mountain with castles, bungee jumpers! We met the owner and his wife - lovely people. He has been working on this layout for 25 years, a true labor of love. A must see for adults as well as children and well worth the money.
