Old Town Model Railroad Depot - Review

This is one of the largest privately owned O scale model train exhibits in the world. The full size is about 2500 square feet. The level of detail is incredible, encompassing a town of a hundred buildings from the 1950s, people in the streets, sweeping landscapes of mountains and lakes and even a large dam. Half of the layout is done in night-mode, the other half in day. Iconic characters like Superman and Marilyn Monroe are included.

  • This is a must if your in Old Town. My son loves trains and when I saw this I knew it was something we had to do. It wasn’t crowded at all I think I only one other family was there when we walked in. It’s free to go in but they do ask for a donation. One really cool thing is, they have little stands built at areas around the track where kids can stand up and watch the train pass by. My son loved it. I did hold his hands because he was so excited I thought he might reach out and grab the train. They have put a lot of work into that model and even if you don’t have kids you should walk through and appreciate the hard work they have put in. I recommend this stop to anyone in the area and if you passing close by and have kids that love trains I would advise you to go out if your way to see it.

  • Really nice setup but the trip was spoiled by the older rude guy at the door. My kids were indeed a bit excited and instead of talking to me he thought it best to yell at them. Then he ordered my daughter to not press any more buttons. She was just trying to make the trains move. Finally on the way out he said "you're making a donation, right?" In a very rude tone. I was already planning to because I figured there are more people involved in this operation and he maybe is just the help. But now I wish I didn't. After reading other feedback, it seems he is the owner and is just too rude for me to recommend. It's a shame because the model railroad setup was spectacular.

  • A must see in Old Town. Amazing place. I can't go to old Town without taking my son here. The staff is super friendly and the entire operation functions on donations only. I always leave a ten or more as my son is in love with this place. A definite must vistit for train enthusiast or anyone at all really.

  • My kids absolutely love this museum. They don't charge an entrance fee, but leave a donation because it is worth it. They have stools for the little ones to see easier, interactive buttons, scavenger hunts within the layout, and very knowledgeable staff!

  • Very well done model train layouts. The night time city layout is fantastic! Very helpful staff and no charge for admission (donations accepted).
