HO Scale Model Railroads

Two complete operational HO scale model railroads and the associated equipment to run them are located inside the Cowan Railroad Museum.

One depicts a characterization of the Cowan area and the tunnel. In some cases the details and rolling stock are accurately portrayed miniatures of equipment that actually ran over this stretch of railroad in the past.  This layout was extensively renovated during the winter of 2009-2010.

The other is Bavarian (Maerklin).  As a generous donation to the museum, it is complete with scenery, buildings and many lights.

A variety of models in different scales are on static display as well.
