World's Largest INDOOR G-Scale Model Railroad!

If you've never been to EnterTRAINment Junction in West Chester, OH, it is the most impressive G-Scale layout I've ever seen. They were kind enough to allow me to shoot some spectacular video, including CAB RIDES, of several of their Main Lines, which cover three different eras: Steam, 1940's-50's, and Modern. You've got to see this to believe it! Here's the link:

I love the point-of-view!
Feels like you're riding the rails.

Maybe it's the camera angle, but I cringed a few times at a few near misses. At 30:42 a big ape shadow..lol

That was the idea of the near misses. They're supposed to keep you awake! As for the big ape, that actually was Godzilla 2014 trying to catch you!

I have been to Entertainment 4 times. My first time there was planned. The other 3 times I was in the area and made side trips to see it again. It really is a spectacular thing to see.
The mountains have to be 8-10 feet high. Really spectacular detail. The structures and the many scenes have great detail. The way they blend the various eras into a flowing history is also great. If you are in the area do not miss this. It doesn't matter what scale you model, this is impressive.

Fully agree, John. There's just something about G gauge. It's the sheer size of the cars.
LOVE the amusement park. And the real highball turnout indicator.
But didn't those crossing gates look extremely long?
