Railway Display Section

The railway display, includes other transport from an earlier era. For instance they had a number of stage coaches, similiar to the one on the right.
The rocket like early engine pulled a string of passenger coaches that look much like stage coaches on railway wheels
There are variety of steam locomotives. They were just to large for us to manage a good photo. The largest engine is over 600 tons and hauled coal. It is claimed to be able to pull 28 million pounds of coal in one train.

Other engines where of a more modest scale, but still very large. The engines also included small units and lots of examples of railway passenger and freight cars.

Of eye catching appeal to me is this Canadian Pacific snow plow vehicle connected to the front af the steam engine that pushed the vehicle into the snow. The wings of the snow plow are folded back into the storage position.
