Train enthusiasts from around the world come to work on the miles of tracks. The tracks are on a 1:7 scale.
There was a snack bar and a gift shop, and lots of places to sit and view the little trains.
We didn't ride on this one, but these pictures show what the trains are like:
We are heading out on our adventure:
There are many sights to see. Miniatures of all sorts kept us entertained along the way:
We even saw a hobo:
Many animals greeted us, just like this family of ducks:
We were astounded by the rare sight of dinosaurs!
Aliens were all over the place:
The tunnel was pretty cool and very dark:

The train seats are boat seats. Pretty good thinking guys.
We came back to the yard and took some more pictures. This is the neatest place for young and old alike. There is a train museum next door, but it is closed on Saturday. The train rides are only offered on Saturday, and the same volunteers take care of both sites.

If you get the chance, go! There are no signs from Highway 97 because ODOT won't let them put one up, but take the road across the street from the gas station and drive a mile or so. Easy peasy!
