Our 1,200 square-foot train exhibit was recently listed as "one of the country's best O-Gauge layouts" by O-Gauge Model Railroading Magazine.

Mountainous topography, numerous detailed structures and careful attention to scenery, typical of 20th century Appalachia, give the visitor a real sense of nostalgia. The layout also features a working river with two steamboats, a scale model blast furnace, a steel arch bridge, a wooden trestle bridge, a logging operation complete with saw mill, a coal mine, an amusement park, a working drive-in theater (seasonal) and a handcrafted "Pennsy" caboose that serves as the operator's console.
