Did not have a lot that interested the children aged 14. Only spent a short time there. Really not too much to see. A couple of old train cars, the engine with a snow plow on it and the turntstile.

On my second Long Island wine tour, I found this Treasure, which essentially is The Lionel Train Museum of Long Island. This is the original set-up from the Lionel Headquarters in Michigan after it closed down. We enjoyed seeing all the old and the miniature...More

The new addition to the village model showing the LIRR's transition from steam to diesel may have a way to go, but the original model is still worth the price of admission, particularly when you need a break from endless carousel rides. Generally open Sat...More
