Wow is right. One question though, why are all the trains hiding? I see them poking out from tunnels and round houses and such but not out in the open. Maybe there are some train hunting eagles out and about. :D :D



I stopped there a couple of years ago while travelling through, wouldn't have even known about it but for the signs in town. It is a really cool setup, and they did have lots of trains running on it when we were there. I think I liked the cogged incline the best.
