Late one night I read a post from a person on this forum who was interested in building a Civil war layout. Years ago I was taken to Gettysburg by friends and I noticed a train museum accross from the cemetary. My wife and friends went on and toured the cemetary and I of course went to the train museum. It was an fantastic museum with trains the likes of which I have never seen. They also had a train layout of Gettysburg at the time of the Civil war. It was really good. Much detail had been paid to every aspect including cannons on the trains which I read was done in some cases. Has anyone seen this. I don't even know if it still exist but it was one of the finest collections I have ever seen.

Been there many times over the years, I find Gettysburg haunting and beautiful. I took my Cajun bride to see the Louisiana memorial, Devil's Den, the Railroad Cut and Picket's Charge the last time we were there. The train museum is the best.

Its the "Lincoln Train Museum" on the grounds of the National cemetary and yeah its one fantastic layout with a lot of different trains. I went there on vacation about 5 years ago and was very impressed.....I always wondered about those civil war engines & cars on Ebay,now I know! WOW! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks Everyone! That's the one. When I went their my wife took our video camera with her to tour Gettysburg. I was so dissapointed not having a camera, that she went back to the Museum and requested that I be let in again to get some shots. Wow I got some great shots. The people that run it were so nice. Now I gotta go on a search my vids to see em again. I will put it on DVD to keep.
