This place is a little hard to find... you actually have to go inside a gift shop and then downstairs to see it. But once you do, you'll be treated to a nice HO layout, for free... or $1 if you want to see the...More

This is very interesting and very well put together. Bring your camera. Only downfall is there are quite a few steps to get down to it. Not handicap accessible.

This is located downstairs on Main Street in Deadwood across from the Mineral Palace Hotel. It is a great way to have some fun watching the trains whiz around the tracks. The whole train set up looks like it could use a little TLC to...More

We finished watching a "Deadwood Alive" skit and saw the sign. Our group is full of train fans, so they leapt with joy and skipped down the stairs to check it out. Everyone said it was really cool & worth the stop.

The model train exhibit is in the basement of a store that sells clothing and t-shirts. It is an expansive diorama and the people who created it paid so much attention to detail creating a variety of scenes. It is free. For a dollar you...More
