The Donald Cooper Model Railroad

The Donald Cooper Model Railroad  **This Exhibit has been Closed until Further Notice**  

Open Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4pm  (not open Wednesdays)

The Museum’s Donald Cooper Railroad is an operating HO-Scale model railroad with many trains traveling between levels and on different routes. Centralized electronic switches allow the operator to control the entire layout from the DCC central control panels. The railroad yard is fully functional allowing operators to make up trains and dispatch them to their own destinations. The four-level high layout has three independent scenic modules that are constantly changing, as well as a trolley, a subway system, logging station, waterfall, roundhouse and turntable. We invite engineers of all ages to come and visit our ever-changing and growing railroad world.

Please note: entrance to the Donald Cooper Model Railroad exhibit is included with entrance to the museum, and is free to Museum members.  For model train enthusiasts, learn more about joining the train crew by contacting, or call 201-512-0099.
