All Aboard!

Ruchama Schnaidman

Welcome to Railroads on Parade! Potterville, New York, is home to Railroads on Parade, a world of five miniature railroad displays with a sixth set to open this summer, where we travel through night and day, the four seasons, different periods of history, and many cities, towns, mountains, and even an island. All aboard!
