Welcome to Legacy Station's Whistle

We are excited to have you join our blog.  Our goal is to provide a service to you.  We have several interesting sections in our blog.  The Extreme Train Layouts   is all about learning why and how others built their layouts.  It explains how people started in model railroading and what they created.  They are very interesting stories with pictures and videos. We have sections on model railroading, Lionel and MTH Trains, trains news and discounts, Traingrams (infograms), and a Train repair section.
