Among the main highlights you will see at our club is:

- a 185 foot long O Scale layout, claimed to be the biggest in the United States!

- all three of the Sopranos layouts: the same ones built for the HBO series, "The Sopranos"!

- our newest display: the Tom Snyder Layout, previously owned by the late great talk show host!

A variety of scale locomotives and toy trains run non-stop at our show, so there is plenty to see!

The Trackside Cafe serves up a nice portion of food for the hungry railroader! Chef Vinny prepares some great food!
