The San Diego Model Railroad Museum in Balboa Park houses the largest model railroad exhibit in the United States. Over a million-and-a-half people have visited this non-profit exhibit since its opening in March, 1982.
Four permanent model railroads are on display for the general public to enjoy, each with completed, operating segments and additional segments that are under construction. The four model railroads are the O-Scale Cabrillo and Southwestern, the N-Scale Pacific Desert Lines, the HO-Scale San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway and the HO-Scale Southern Pacific – Santa Fe Tehachapi Line.
This is your chance to get a detailed look at the craftsmanship and finely detailed work that goes into creating a smooth-running and realistic model railroad. Thousands of hours of labor have been poured into these layouts and the results are being showcased using spectacular camera angles both on and off the trains.
This exciting program brings America’s largest model railroad exhibit right into your home, complete with music, narration, and dubbed-in railroad sound effects.
