My wife and I came into the Old Towne Model Railroad Depot today and it was truly a wonderful experience! The sets and the trains were fantastic. We Love Trains and it’s a fun place to visit when you are in the area. Thank you again for sharing to the friendly and amazing staff there! :)
Wow wow wow. The most meticulously detailed train set I’ve ever seen. The way it’s separated into a day and a night section is amazing. I could spend hours here because it’s that relaxing and adorable. They even have a train set drive-in playing a movie! Too much. Also, the gentleman working there was super sweet. No cost. But donations accepted. We bought a train print for $8.00. What a deal.
