So much to see. Visiting with the 98 year old owner Watermelon. So knowledgeable about all the railroads. Great displays including RR cars to see.
Had a blast. Grandson loved it. My grandson met Jeremy from OKC on his birthday and played with him in the children's area. They are modifying a caboose for kids to play in. Several layouts of different scales. Lots of rolling stock outside, especially caboose's from different lines. One steam engine 4-8-2 Frisco 1519.
