Northern Minnesota's Largest Model Train Display
Getting Back on Track
The Northern Minnesota Railroad Heritage Association, commonly referred to as the Crosslake Train Club, moved to a new location in 2018, but just days after the move, the building housing the club had a fire. Nearly all of its exhibits and inventory were lost.
Not to be dissuaded, this dedicated group immediately started fundraising, and with the help of grants and generous community members a new building went up, and the group got to work with ambitious plans for continuing to preserve the rich history of Northern Minnesota Railroads.
We have O Scale, HO Scale and G Scale layouts and running trains on display. There is also a small layout that children can operate.
Come in and watch club members work on building the exhibits. The museum is open to the public.
A donation of *$5 per person over 5 years old is suggested.

“Driving the train doesn't set its course,
the real job is laying the track.”
