Inside World’s Largest Model Train Museum

When someone suggested that the the world’s largest model train museum is located in Flemington, NJ I was a bit surprised. Yet, curious, I set out for a trip to find out.

In 1972 owner Bruce William Zaccagnino built a small ranch house, with a basement for his hobby. He started this work as a hobby of the model railroad. He added 4 basements to his house to work with a time of 18 years. The 3rd and 4th basement is 3 times bigger than his original house.
