We visit the Railroad Museum of Long Island in Riverhead to see seemingly endless and fantastic model train layouts.  

The museum has an outreach program for more than five years now, where they go around with the train layouts for historical and educational purposes.  They have permanent displays in their Riverhead and Greenport locations.  

To set up and build the train layouts, it takes close to 16 hours with a crew of eight volunteers working on them.  We catch up with visitors at the museum, who share their memories of when they were children and playing with trains, and who still play with them now.
