Model Trains Station (Mini World of Trains) is now located at Taylors Mill in Taylors, South Carolina. We occupy 16,000 square feet in DOCK 3 of Taylors Mill Development. An exciting feature of this location is the main line train tracks of Norfolk Southern just behind our building. They have trains passing by on a regular schedule. This is an ideal location for building and enjoying model trains.
Phase One for the year 2017 was aimed at finding a long term location. During 2017 we constructed and electrified the structural walls to house our train displays at Taylors Mill for your continued enjoyment. We officially opened for visitors the first of December with two HO sale displays and a 50% enlargement of your beloved Lionel O scale Christmas display.
Phase Two started in January 2018 to date. We have now added a new HO scale lumber train display with three running trains, and a new N scale display with four running trains. We also have a working G scale train display with two running trains. This G scale display is in the process of expansion to triple it's size. There is our seasonal Lionel O scale train display with four running trains. Volunteers are also in the construction process of a second N scale display. We have visitor friendly interactive controls for some of the displays for you and your little engineers.
Phase Three in 2019 will be involved in building a free lance train display similar to the one we had in downtown Greenville by Falls Park. As of June, we have volunteers operating a total of 15 trains on five displays. There is also an onsite train repair building for us and customers (for a small donation).
We are a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (Mini World of Trains d/b/a Model Trains Station). All donations are tax deductible.
Your continued donations that have been received during our reorganization have been greatly appreciated and have allowed us to proceed in our endeavor to create a space for building train themed layouts for the whole family to enjoy. We know a lot of you cannot wait for those special days that you will be able to run your own trains on the different displays.
As a not-for-profit organization, the Model Trains Station depends on individual donations and corporate sponsors to bring the best train associated activities to the upstate of South Carolina. Your generous financial support continues to be of the utmost importance.
Spreading the word about Model Trains Station to all your friends will help in your continued support for train lovers of all kinds that we are a viable organization. New donators and volunteers will help us expand our footprint at Taylors Mill.
