Even if you have been before, it is worth another visit. They are always working on new tracks and adding things. Great for all ages. Just imagine a cool model train layout that you can step into and ride through.

My son loves everything about trains and visiting here made his day! The ride is surprisingly long, and there are sights and models along the route. They have modified car seats, so my 2 year old was able to ride along and see everything. This...More

We visited with the whole family. This is a small but unique attraction for children and train aficionados. We plan to go back every year in this down-to-earth venue and see what the owners have built over the year.

This is a great outing. We arrived on a drizzly day (we could have been back in Scotland, it was that type of day) and the two volunteers running the steamers were still very enthusiastic. Their enthusiasm and passion for the model railway added to...More

We love Live Steamer clubs. The club obviously loves their hobby and all the little fun things set up to look at along the way were awesome. A great 30 minute ride through the forest. They are improving this all the time. A wonderful outing...More

My toddler loved it! Anyone, any age can ride for a small donation. It seems to be a great idea for the little ones and even small children. Highly recommended!

A great time riding on the mini train through the woods. The kids love riding and looking at all the fun, creative characters and buildings the volunteers have created.

We love to ride the trains at least a couple times a year. The enthusiastic volunteers there are continually making improvements and are great with the kids.
