Turn back time to Sept. 27, 1903. Express train Old 97 tumbled off Stillhouse trestle and hurtled into a rocky creek bed below where eleven men lost their lives and six more were injured. See a miniature version of the wreck scene in the Science Center’s lobby. Visit the Pepsi building to watch N-scale models traveling through tiny towns and rural areas. Walk through a fully restored Norfolk and Western caboose along the train tracks.
Check out your favorite model train cars in recreations of miniature Americana at Old 97 Rail Days N-Scale Model Train Show. N-scale model trains run and weave along multi-layer tracks crossing artistic landscapes of mountains, valleys and rivers. Everything is to scale from the loads on the box cars to the cows in the fields.
All ages are welcome.
