We had the pleasure of enjoying the spooky Halloween train ride. This was the final year after 33 years of running. Best wishes and good luck.

Built locally, the Junction Valley Railroad is minutes from nearby Frankenmuth Michigan. Children from 1-100 will enjoy the ride and unique designed railroad.

Although the place has gotten run down in the last few years. This is well worth a stop. It is very fun to ride the trains down and around the valley. They also have very nice pedal cars in the valley. Everything is very realistic looking, and it was also all built by hand. Unfortunately, the JV Railroad is closing... More

Excellent detail on all the cars. Great family place. I am so sad this is there last year. Try to ketch it before it's gone forever.

So my mom found a pamphlet for this place somewhere on their travels. My kids are small and love train rides so we thought we'd give it a go. I should have known when I called to see how frequent the train rides are and the guy I spoke to seemed very puzzled about the whole thing that we were... More

I was so excited to visit this store. But the area surrounding it looks very junky and apparently they're closed on Mondays according to a posting on there door. Not impressed from what I saw.

We bought our grandchildren to ride the train and play in the picnic area. They love trains and this one is just the right size for them to enjoy. It's not to big for kids and yet adults have lots of room. The train is a one of a kind and loops slowly around a huge track area over bridges... More

My father and my 5 year old daughter are train lovers. My dad enjoyed the hobby shop, but my daughter loved the train ride. What we didn't know, but will plan for next time was the train takes you to Pleasant Valley, a shady, cool oasis with playground equipment pinic tables, petal cars, scooters, sandbox andcall sorts of fun things....
