“AKA traintown U.S.A.”

Since 1961, people across the country and around the world have come to visit a truly unique attraction...the Choo Choo Barn -- Traintown U.S.A.®! Our 1,700 square foot train features over 150 hand-built animated figures and vehicles and 22 operating trains…we guarantee the Choo Choo Barn is like nothing you've ever seen! In 1993, the list of specialty shops grew with the addition of Thomas’ Trackside Station, an officially licensed “Thomas The Tank Engine & Friends™” store. This store is made doubly unique by being the only 100% Thomas store in the United States. Over 1200 different items are featured, all involving the little blue engine from the Island of Sodor, and all his friends. Unfortunately, econonomic and other factors forced the Groffs to close both Railroad Books and Videos and Thomas’ Trackside Station in April 2013. The Shops Of Traintown are also home to Uncle Leroy’s Ice Cream and Candy Kitchen and Isaac’s Famous Grilled Sandwiches. And the picnic grove is still here, but you don’t need a ticket any more! A lot has changed since the days in the Groff family basement. This train layout has grown into an attraction for all ages and all groups…you don’t need to be a model railroading enthusiast to enjoy the scenery and animations presented on this display. The display continues to re-open each spring, and Tom Groff and his talented team continue to add, update, clean, renovate, and restore the display, so there’s something new to see every year.
