On the Right Track
Campers will have the opportunity to spend a week working with experts, as they collaboratively design and construct a fully functional model railroad layout. Their completed design will be featured in the museum. Then one lucky camper will have a chance to win and take home the layout. Full day campers will also go on fieldtrips to local train venues.
