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
