BEST Toy & Train Show in Tulare County

The Story of the Trains

The Museum is housed in the former passenger terminal of the Southern Pacific Railroad, so it's only fitting that we honor our history by displaying model trains and vintage toys once each year.  The idea of running toy trains at the Museum goes back to the early 1980's when the "Underwater Train Society"  erected the first display with operating layouts.  Those early toy train pioneers have long since passed the torch to others, but their vision and efforts are remembered.

 

Polar Express Toy Train

In recent years, Dr. Don Stover, mixing equal doses of grit and generosity, has kept the torch lit.  Under his leadership the toy and train show has grown into the premier display of operating model trains in all of Tulare County and beyond.

With new additions to the display every year, whether you are a first time visitor or a repeat toy train rail-fan, the toy and train show is sure to delight.  All aboard!
