Train exhibit, working layout exhibit at Culver museum

May 17, 2011

Though the original layout, which occupied over 40 by 24 feet of space under the school's dining hall and was overseen by late band director Col. Edward Payson, was destroyed 25 years ago, the several hundred vintage cars -- many rare and historical -- remain, as do various artifacts and memorabilia from the setup.
