  • MINIATURE DIESEL 15 IN.
Comments/Directions:
A 1/3 scale diesel engine is operated by the owner of the adjoining Amish style restaurant. The trackage includes a small bridge, a small "tunnel" and a view of the yard which has a diesel engine as well as a coal car that is used to spread gravel. The passenger cars, as well as the tunnel and bridge are not very realistic, so the main attraction here are the engines. There is also an antique tractor museum on the site. Also we are restoring the N&W wood caboose in Wakarusa, Indiana back to its original number and logo. "Wabash" was painted on it because the museum wanted a piece of equipment that reflected the major carrier through that area, and they already had an N&W coach so they wanted variety. Next year marks the 25th year the caboose has been at Waky, so we are cosmetically returning it to its proper scheme. The N&W coach will mark it's 20th year at the museum in August, hence the painting going on now.
