Model Trains

The Customs House Museum boasts one of the largest model railroad layouts in the region in our Heimansohn Gallery.  We invite you to interact with our exhibit, controlling the animation of action within the layout. Make the figures and automobiles move, and helicopters fly. Be sure to visit Thomas the Tank Engine at the Island of Sodor.

Check out the history of train travel with the museum’s historical railroad poster collection.  View the numerous static displays of collectible model locomotive engines and the many types of railroad rolling stock.

We invite you to join our Volunteer Operators to help run and maintain the train exhibit, which began in 1987.

Trains run from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm every Sunday and 10:00 am – 12:00 pm every Wednesday.
