This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

18 years ago in Chiloquin, Oregon, Quenten Breen began construction on Train Mountain, a place where grown men could go to ride small trains. Today, over 24 miles of track lies in this scenic countryside, making the Guinness Book of World Records’ longest hobby railroad in the world. See some of the meticulous reproductions, one-eighth the size of normal trains, and learn what future plans are for in store for this railroad fantasy land.
