Model 'Train Topia' Coming To Frisco

Thanks to nbcdfw.com for this story

Did you know that the city of Frisco got its name because of the railways and trains that passed through it back in the 1800's? Frisco became a water stop and the railroad companies built a town around it. It's named after the Frisco Railroad.

Soon, a massive train display will be unveiled at the railroad museum at Frisco’s Discovery Center. The exhibit, named Train Topia features a G-scale model train layout spanning more than 2,500 square feet and has 6 precision trains that run at the same time. Among its many features are an animated downtown Dallas, including a bustling Union Station, the famed Palo Duro drive-in theatre with an actual movie playing!

This G-scale model layout is valued at more than $1 million.

Look for Train Topia to welcome guests in June
