Visit a magical world, surrounded by thousands of colorful toy trains made between 1860 and 1939 by companies like Lionel, American Flyer, and Ives – many of them rolling merrily through miniature towns and countryside, tunnels and bridges. This unique holiday destination has been the subject of books, magazines, and entire television programs – and now you can experience it yourself.
The largest collection of antique American toy trains in the world is right here in Allegheny West! Privately owned, its displays and operating village layouts are open to the public on just two days a year – for visitors to the annual Allegheny West Christmas Tours.
Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to step back in time, joining visitors of all ages as they revisit Christmas long ago – through the eyes of a child.
