I love model trains and it’s been far too long since there’s been any model train blogging here at Mannionville Station. So, here we go, a giant model train setup at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.
Stretched across a 3,500 square foot “S” shaped table “The Great Train Story” takes visitors from Chicago across the plain states and over the Rockies all the way to the Port of Seattle. This huge model train set cost $3.5 million dollars and opened to the public in 2002.
