Can you hear the train pulling into the station? Well, it might not be the proper train station, but they certainly have a collection at 200 N. East St. Frederick, MD 21701

Where are we going today?

Toot toot!  The train is just pulling into the station!  Vroom vroom.....there go the cars!

Roads and Rails Museum is a super cool experience for all those kids who just LOVE their chugging trains and whizzing automobiles. It also happens to be one of the world's largest model train attractions, we well as it's own miniature world with animations, cars, trains and interactive fun! 

Wander round the incredibly detailed minature cities, tracks, and towns, and even check out the very colorful and new lego display. 

Who created those weird and wonderful crop circles?  Could it be aliens!?  Or perhaps you want to check out the very cool and extravagent Graceland - home of Elvis? 

They pride themselves on being the largest minature world in the entire country, and they could possibly be right!  Spend time looking at all the displays...who can you spot!?  Where is that train going?

They have gone above and beyond the attention to detail, and kids will love trying to look for everything.

All aboard - the train is about to leave for the Roads and Rails Museum!

    Roads and Rails was the coolest place I have been in a while. I think they should charge more than $8 to see the exhibit...Puts Thomas the Train sets, and even the many train displays you would see during a Christmas in Manhattan, to shame. You will be amazed!
