Holiday Model Train Display

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Scenes from the model train display at Glen Rock Hose & Ladder Co. in Pennsylvania. This amazing model railroad was closing for good the night I stopped by. I arrived late, just as the final visitors were leaving. The volunteers stuck around for 2 hours while I shot the 4 rooms of track. When I finished, they took the entire display down.

National Toy Train Museum
Strasburg, Pennsylvania

This museum is just a couple miles from its larger and better-known sibling,
the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. Being rather tired from our earlier hike, I lacked the energy for the big museum. This little one provided just the right amount of diversion, without depleting the last of my reserves.

They display one of the world’s most extensive toy train collections. They have layouts of several gauges, and many other train-related playthings from many eras.

All the layouts have elements that visitors can operate (this one flashed the truck’s headlights). My inner child found these things quite amusing.
