The tradition of the model train display at the Brandywine River Museum is almost as old as the museum itself! Since 1971, the museum's collection of trains has grown to include 150 locomotives and 300 freight cars. The collection is frequently augmented by trains loaned by visiting engineers. Toy trains in the collection are mostly Lionel products dating from 1915 to the present. A "must see" for the youngest train fans is Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends from the Isle of Sodor!
