Be prepared to be amazed by the realistic looking model railroads and model trains inside the San Diego Model Railroad Museum.
“At 27,000 sq. ft., the museum is one the largest indoor model railroad displays in the world and the only accredited railroad themed musuem in USA. The individual HO and N scale layouts are among largest of their type. Construction of the model railroads is accomplished by volunteer club members (approximately. 320). Each club is responsible for the design, construction, funding, and operation of its exhibit.”
I had a great time admiring the model trains and came away with a greater appreciation for this hobby and for their preservation of train history in California and the United States. Although we will not be playing with train sets anytime soon (I will rather ride the real thing), I love that we have museums like this one that keeps all the enthusiast (young and older) engaged. Hope you enjoy these pictures.
