Misty Mountain Model Railroad

The Misty Mountain Model Railroad was amazing to visit when open. But when the owner passed away it was closed and has not reopened since. Of note was the fact that. when open. all of the proceeds from admission were given to charity. Also, it took a crew of people to direct people to parking, entrance, exit, and other aspects. These people were all friends and volunteers.
