All aboard! The Museum of the American Railroad's newest exhibit opens this summer at the Frisco Discovery Center. 

TrainTopia was donated to the museum by the Sanders family of Dallas. The massive, 2,500-square-foot layout was custom built for Steve Sanders, a local collector and successful businessman. The layout was originally constructed in Corsicana then later moved to the Sanders’ new home in North Dallas. It depicts, in intricate detail, Colorado, West Texas, 1950s Downtown Dallas, and other locations in between where the Sanders family lived or visited. Read more about the exhibit from the Museum of the American Railroad.

The effort of moving the trains to Frisco was made possible thanks to a donation from Amanda and Brint Ryan of Dallas.
