    Arriving with my boys, ages 6 & 3, I was immediately impressed by the friendly ticket booth worker and found myself pleasantly surprised the remainder of our visit by the geniality of the train engineers, the relative variety of activities, and the cleanliness of the grounds.A number of the “buildings” have seen better days and aren’t impressive by the standard of, say, Disneyland. But as a local diversion at a reasonable cost Tiny Town & Railroad is well worth the time. I did see a couple that did not appear to be paid employees working on one of the small buildings, cleaning the inside and otherwise attending to its maintenance.To expand on some details and reinforce what you may read or see in the photos, the overall facility is larger than I expected and how appeared from the road. There is a nice area with picnic tables shaded by tall pine trees, as well as another area with tables and benches adjacent to the playground (another pleasant, and very welcome, surprise.)There is actually a bit of history to Tiny Town, and if you’re inclined to be interested in such things as I am, don’t miss the photographs documenting key moments on large outdoor displays in the tall pines across the main path near the picnic tables.The main path iteself is asphalt (wood plank near the train depot/gift shop) which I would imagine makes it very accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, though there are some things that are surrounded by by dirt, rocks, or grass, a detail that might matter if you are visiting soon after a heavy rain or early in the year, since mud could be factor.Along those lines, the (free) parking is mostly dirt with one main cement path leading the crosswalk that takes you across a 2-lane backroad to the entrance to Tiny Town. I didn’t visit the concession stand during our visit. It does appear outside food & drink is permitted from observing other guests with coolers.All said, from this initial visit I highly recommend Tiny Town & Railroad for families and visitors looking for a low-key, reasonably-priced local attraction.

    I was 4 years old in 1929 when I rode the train and walked the streets of Tiny Town. As I recall the buildings were smaller than me. I could not go inside. I have not had the opportunity to visit since and wondered if it was still there. I’m happy to see that it is. This is a very special place for children and should be preserved for all future generations.
