Attraction details
Owner description: Over 70 years in the making, this gigantic model train layout is still owned and operated by the Groff family. Master modeler, Tom Groff, designs and adds new animations, scale buildings and local scenes each year. See a fire engine race to the rescue to put out the fire at a burning house – with real water! Watch in awe as night falls over Traintown, USA. You’ll recognize local landmarks like Dutch Wonderland and the Strasburg Railroad – in detailed miniature! This is much more than a train display – it is an amazing, hand-built work of art.

The Choo Choo Barn is well worth the price of admission. The detailed layout and the new additions every year make it a favorite tradition of my family.

Lots of historic souvenirs, plus Thomas the Tank Engine, and model train accessories. Truly a diverse set of shops for all ages of train lovers.
