  • Very nice tour and more too it than you might think.
  • Stopped in on a Saturday (driving through from Milwaukee to Carbondale to check out the Eclipse) 3 great models (N, HO, and O) lots of knowledgeable train and model train enthusiasts on hand to tell great stories and provide tours of an old passenger and running car, caboose, and the model sets.
