The Bellingham Railway Museum, run by local enthusiasts, has a detailed G gauge layout built by its members. That's fun to watch, but what really makes this museum a slam dunk for kids is a lionel model railroad that can be run by kids of all ages through a simple push-button system. Our kids loved having an opportunity to run the trains themselves instead of just looking (as is so often the case at train museums) through a glass window.
