This is one of the largest indoor model railroad exhibits in the world. Manage by four local railroad clubs, there are five main exhibits.
- Cabrillo & Southwestern - Route from San Diego to Sacramento.
- Pacific Desert Lines - Represents 33 miles worth of track that was never built, scaled down to 331 metres.
- San Diego & Arizona Eastern RR - Prototype San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway line from San Diego to El Centro.
- Tehachapi Pass - A highly detailed model of the Southern Pacific / Santa Fe railroad from Bakersfield to Mojave.
- Toy Train Gallery
- Centennial Railway Garden - Scaled light rail street cars amongst Spanish Colonial architecture.
Needless to say, train lovers and kids love this place. The models are scarily immersive and you could spend hours picking out individual details.
