Has anyone seen train layouts at a museum? The one in Chicago kicks ass. :thumb:
There is a huge S-scale layout in the Cincinnati History Museum...which is located in Cincinnati's Union Terminal.
Cincinnati in Motion
No Museum's Layout is going to compare to Chicago's Museum Of Science & Transportations.....They had a Budget that was HUGE.:thumb:
Duluths RR Museum has a fair DM&IR Model RR although it is a Bit dated and St Paul MN Bandana Square has a club layout thats Nice but a bit of a spaghetti bowl......It is also a Bit dated as far as layouts go.:cry:
I live in Toronto. The Royal Ontario Museum does not have a layout to my knowledge. :-(
The biggest layout I know of is the CHI town union station
Signature - Celebrating Life In Your Community
Never been there but maybe some day. I have been to the old layout at museum of science an industry but not the new one. Chi town is 5500 square feet and 6000 feet of track. Science and industry is 3500 square feet and 1425 feet of track. Heres a video of chi town

I helped build one for the tucson children's museum years ago. I don't know if it is still there. And there is one in the museum in Ogden Utah in the old train station there.
I am the VP of The Western Reserve Model Railraod Museum located in Mentor, Ohio ( 16 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio).
We have layouts in G, O, S, HO, On3, N, lego, Brio, and 2 rail O trolley.
Here is our web site
Tom nice setups there. Are pictures 2,3(0378,0377) a N gauge layout? That looks pretty impressive.
There is a ho scale railroad in the Tacoma WA. History Museum. Next to the refurbished Union Pacific Station.

These two pics are of the HO layout for 8 feet above the layout. I was working on the lights and as long as I was that high, I took some pics from above. :thumb:
There's a layout in British columbia, could be in stanly park i havent been there tho
I recently found the Model Railroader Magazine Z Scale Western Pacific project railroad on Ebay late last year and helped get it purchased and brought to the Western Pacific RR Museum (WPLives Home) in Portola, Ca. It will be transported in our baggage car to various events and on display in there for the public to enjoy.
I really dont think you should be on ladders and working with electricity when your High. :mrgreen:
The California State Railroad Museum has a toy-train layout and a cluster of small dioramas of different model railroad scales. The railroad museum in Green Bay has a large club layout on the grounds that I found quite impressive.
When the lights are 20 feet off the ground, it helps to be high! :cry:
