— On the top floor of an old red barn in Wilson – the Antique Barn and Hobby Shop – is 467 miles of mainline railroad track. It's an enormous model-train layout, and the trains are running. The operation is like a real railroad. Club members must obey signals and watch their speed. Otherwise … derailment.
