    Default Roadside America Miniature Village, PA, closing after 85 years

    Knew this could not be too far off. But a piece of local model railroad history if going away. For many people near the Mid-Atlantic area, Roadside America was a part of growing up.
    It was never a rivet counter's vision but it was an inspiring part of Americana and helped keep interest in trains alive for many children through several generations.
    Sad that I will not be able to go with any future grandkids.

    That's astounding and is really unfortunate. It had an amazing run. That's quite a legacy.
