It is hard to believe that one man - Nobutaro Hara - did all of this. His collection is amazing. It is only surpassed by his skill in building. His talent is very evident. He traveled all over the world collecting photos, movies, train tickets,...More

The model trains made by Nobutaro Hara are a work of art requiring real craftsmanship, and you can tell how good he is by looking at the amount of intricacy and detail in each model engine on display. Good for both casual visitors and hobbyists....More

Definitely the biggest display of model trains and railway systems we’ve ever seen. Really impressive that one man could collect everything rail including ticket stubs. Our son loved operating the model trains and having a go at being a train driver.

This is a nice museum of model railroads. There was a rather large crowd the day we went, I guess it was a school vacation day. Most of the more interesting models are close to "O" scale but there are some smaller and larger ones...More
