Originally built for the founder of Godfather's Pizza, in Omaha, NE; the Nebraska Central Railway now resides at the Milwaukee Railroad Shops Museum in the Siouxland Historical Railroad Association area of Sioux City, IA.

The layout has been undergoing major restoration and is now open to the public. Here's some video I shot last week:

Another model railroad that's under construction is in Mason City, which is a bit closer to where I live. Here's a video:

The one in Sioux City is worth the drive. Spend the day there, it's more than just a model railroad layout.

OK...I appreciate model RRs but was quickly losing interest in the video until they mounted the camera on the train itself. That is pretty cool!
