  • A great model railway and heaven for my son. The owner even let him put his camcorder on one of the trucks to record a video of the "trip" 
  • A magnificent reconstruction of landscapes of the years 1950-1960, with long trains circulating. One can spend the time if we decide to look in detail. Free entry, donations welcome.

  • Very nice Model Train layout. The owners are a really nice couple. Stop by if your in the area! They charge no fee, just a donation if you don't mind. Thumbs up!
  • As a 4th generation model train enthusiast I can honestly say I have never been more impressed with a Railroad Depot! The creativity, light hearted humor and attention to detail set this operation apart from the rest. There is no better way to describe this than as a "Labor of Love." The owner and staff are warm and welcoming and very helpful. I have shared this gem of Old Town with all who will listen! Can't wait to visit again soon!
  • If you haven't seen this place yet, you really should. The attention to detail put into this display is unreal. Look for superman coming out of a telephone booth. Great work!
  • What a hidden gem. The train set is spectacular. The amount of detail that went into this model really shows. There's hidden jokes all through the model. Be sure to bring a camera as they allow you to take pictures of everything. Dogs are allowed as long as they're small and don't bark.
  • My little brother loves trains. We had trouble prying him away from the building. Admittedly though, I found myself smiling as well. Whoever set it all up put obvious love and care into everything. There were so many funny and interesting scenes that had me laughing. I recommend everyone visit at least once. Oh, and keep your eyes open for Superman, he's exactly where you'd expect.
