This is a model railroad that you ride, not a tabletop display. Nearly 600 tons of steel went into its construction, and it's reportedly the largest miniature railroad in the world. Built by William "Pa" Stenger Jr as his personal train set, he opened it to the public in 1982. When Pa died in June 2012, his casket was placed on a flat car and he was taken for one last ride around his attraction.
