If you’re looking for something to do with the kids while they’re off from school for the holidays, grab your conductor hats and head out to the Garden Factory [map]. They’ve got a 60’x20′ model railroad on display thru the end of the month that you won’t want to miss.
Built to “G” gauge, which is roughly half-an-inch per foot, the model train display is the work of two local train enthusiasts, David Rouse and Peter Todd. Peter past away in 2008, but before that, the duo had worked on major train projects all over the Rochester area.
The Garden Factory has been putting on the display since 1990 along with a holiday light show (admission: $3 adults / $2 kids, 10-2:30p), a mini petting zoo, arts and crafts, and visits from Santa Claus himself.
Train Display Hours:
November 25 thru December 23
December 26 thru December 31
