The museum has its 34-foot-long scale-model railroad exhibit featuring vintage Lionel trains running on eight separate loops. The trains chug through all sorts of wintry scenes, including Manhattan streets, suburbs, farmland and even the North Pole. Oh boy do the kids LOVE watching as the trains run through tunnels and under passages. And chances are…you would too!
Really Great events.. I never knew the underground railroad went through Brooklyn. But then again I shouldn’t be surprised.. freedom was in the north.
