About

The Taltree Arboretum Railway Garden is a 2.5- acre model railway garden that engages visitors in the amazing story of America’s railroads. The railway lines include: Canyon, Mining, Mountain, Prairie, Steam Passenger, Steel Mills and the South Shore Line. There’s even a 1920s-style railroad depot with vintage-style benches, panoramic views of the garden and a gift shop. Taltree is also a great place to walk and enjoy gardens, woods, a pond and prairies. Admission fees apply. NOTE: Although the Arboretum is open all year and has extended hours, the Railway Garden is only open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily from April to October.
