Our Museum

Of the 6 rooms in the museum, 5 are dedicated to model trains, static displays and operating layouts of several scales, including many items from full sized railroads.

The operating layouts have the following operating scale model trains:

  • A scale called standard gauge (early quite large scale antique Lionel tin plate train,)
  • Two Lionel O scale loop tracks and an antique Marx O scale loop.
  • One S scale American Flyer Antique loop.
  • One HO and 1 On3 (narrow gauge) loops.
  • One loop of the larger G gauge (G for Garden) locomotive and cars.
  • A very small Z scale trains layout, whose tiny locos are difficult to keep running
  • A room sized layout of N scale with 3 loops and fully landscaped.
  • A large room layout, an HO scale with 4 giant loops, and landscaped of early local train routes.
  • A smaller HO Marklin (German) operating layout

On the walls of our museum rooms are the static displays which include:

  • All the scales of the different steam locomotives, and cars, over 3000 on the inventory.
  • Many display cases of model history, antique train kits, and specialty trains, wee kids train toys
  • 500 train books.  Table top,  modelers, live actions, early technical train & repair education.

The 3 rooms of the original depot are full of the layouts and model trains too.  The waiting room is now the gift shop, and ticket office.

The station masters room, has some of the items that he would use, like telegraphs, messages, adding machines, and the baggage room.
