Long Description:
The Taltree Railway Garden is an outdoor G (Garden)-scale model railway garden that engages visitors of all ages in an environment where they can explore, discover, play, and learn about horticulture and natural history. The Taltree Railway Garden encompasses just under an acre and tells amazing stories of American railroads in the context of a large display garden. Railway Lines include: Canyon, Mining, Mountain, Prairie, Steam Passenger, Steel Mills, and the South Shore Line.

Walkways surrounding the entire display are wide and comfortably-accessible for strollers and wheelchairs. Conveniently placed benches are sited beneath shade trees to enable guests to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Taltree Railway Garden.

Mountains and towers, bridges and tunnels, and of course, trains, have transformed the landscape behind a charming 1920s-era depot into a magical place. A wide range of landscapes are carved into the site, offering a visual sense of trains running through canyons, mountains, and prairies.
