Nice to see an old landmark (Holly theater) preserved. A constantly growing and changing layout, all done in O-scale. Young children love the motion and the sound of seeing trains run through mountains, into tunnels, and small towns. Volunteers are friendly and willing to answer questions about out the trains, layout and the operating system.

My granddaughters enjoyed it so much. Even if you don't like trains you would enjoy this, just seeing all the detailed work that went into this set up. Only open a few months out of the year, so make a point to go see it on your week end trip to Holly.

This place is a model train lovers delight! It's proof the only difference between men and boys are the price of their toys! It's great to see people who enjoy a hobby and sharing it with others., watching all the trains is mezmerizing! Choo Choo!

Even if it's not your thing, you should go. Take the kids and the camera. It’s really amazing all the work and detail that has gone into the model railroad display they have.
