  • Bring your child and your inner child! At kids’ eye level, “ride” the Model T-Trak Trains as they interweave and whip pass each other with vitality through the landscapes, forests, towns, coursing by farm houses, warehouses, fire houses, churches, roadhouse restaurants, gasoline stations, junk yards, miniature persons & more! These Trains are purposeful, bringing joy to the beholders, and the Model T-Trak Train Magicians who bring them to you! On Board! Photo Courtesy MPI.
