Photos of the Missouri History Museum Model Railroad Layout

The St. Louis Central Railroad

The Gateway Division designed, constructed and donated this recreation of the “St. Louis Central” model railroad layout for the Missouri Historical Society. This operating train layout was part of an exhibit on models and miniatures at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park (Saint Louis) October 5, 2002 to January 21, 2003. This train layout is no longer on exhibit at the museum, but you can still explore it through the approximately one hundred photos we have added to our website.
