This elaborate, highly detailed, fully operational and occasionally whimsical model railroad display is housed in its own 900 square foot building in Jonesport's Mason Bay area. Harold "Buz" Beal loved trains all his life and decided to take his hobby to a new level in 1988. After several changes in design, with the help of his wife Helen and other family, the current version was begun in 1993 and became such an excellent model that it was featured on two of Bangor's television stations in 1999. Some of the current features are:
There is so much to explore we invite you to spend a leisurely day looking for all the delightful situations and everyday scenes depicted as you watch the trains operate on a schedule to match full-scale railroads. Improvements are always being made, like the latest project which is adding lights to all the factories, churches , homes, etc. so the trains can operate at "night". Once you visit, you'll want to come back on a regular basis to see how the railroad has grown!
Enthusiasts of all ages are welcome to drop in - no need to call.
Again, there is no admission fee but donations to help with continued improvements are always appreciated.
