Hyde Park Train Depot

We have driven close to the Hyde Park Train Station several times but it was never open.  Somehow I came across their website and found that they were open on Monday evenings from 5 to 9.  So, we headed over to the station after a day of window shopping and wandering.  I know Lee was ready!

When we arrived there was no one there and the doors were locked.  Another car with grandparents and a couple of kids showed up shortly after we did.  We talked for awhile and we both agreed that we had seen that it opened at 5 PM.  Luckily, as we were about to leave a gentleman with a key showed up, opened the doors and gave us a tour of the place.

While we were there an Amtrak train whisked by!

They have been doing some refurbishing in the 
Train Station, thus the conductor at the window!

 N Gauge Layout

Most of the Train Station is now devoted Model Railroad Layouts.  Downstairs there are several stand alone N Gauge layouts.  Upstairs is a single HO Model Layout that goes around the entire room.

An old Passenger Car Model built by Joe Krajicek

Lee thinks it is a G Gauge (Quarter Inch To The Foot) Model.

This trestle is an HO Scale and was donated in memory of William H. Bartles who built the trestle bridge for his model railroad.

The following are all a part of the same HO railroad layout which is upstairs in the Railroad Station.
