LOCATIONIn the old Orin Woodbury home (no longer there)

DESCRIPTIONThe museum was put together in the attic of the old Woodbury home. The entrance was on the north face of the house with a door and steep steps leading up to the attic.
There were HO and N model trains running everywhere in the two rooms there.
HISTORYAfter Walder "Walt" May had been in the old Woodbury home for a while, he started building a fancy railroad museum and puppet show upstairs in the attic.
Many grammar school classes came to the home and were let up the steep stairs to the attic. They were excited to see the train museum and the puppet show.
Mr. May has now recreated the RR Museum in his home in Winchester Hills.
