Newly in public hands, this is the world's largest 7.5 inch railway. Run by volunteers this is a place you go to ride trains, learn to operate trains, operate railbikes and volunteer with a myriad of chores that keep this high altitude forest and playground in amazing condition. Volunteers at the Klamath & Western RR on one corner provide rides to the public by donation - so that's an easy way to dip your toes in the water. The much larger playground has over 30 miles of rail. You join a club and bring your own equipment. Soon you'll be able to rent rail bikes for easy access.

We stopped by during on a Friday after Labor Day, so there weren't any trains running, but they have a good display of old railroad cars. It would have been fun to see the miniature trains running, but it was a good history lesson to see the railroad cars. Check their website. I guess there is a lot going on... More

We went on a Monday afternoon and lucked out in having the opportunity to ride with Dennis on his little train. We have a child who adores trains and this experience was something he will be talking about for weeks.

Great place to drop by for a short run or stay longer and have a volunteer give you a ride around the emense network of track. You wouldn't have to be a train fan to enjoy this place. Will be visiting again!!.

We saw this in the AAA book, otherwise we would not have known about it. Nothing else quite like it in the US! If you like trains or have kids who like trains, this is a must see.

Great place and Museum to look at full sized trains and ride some large models as well, a fun family attraction for sure! Completely run strictly by volunteers so be sure to call to make sure some one is there and it is open.

A fantastic train set up with many museum quality old rail cars and 35ish miles of 7.5 gauge riding track. Don't miss the Klamath & Western free rides on Saturdays
