The expansion of the museum’s spectacular Donald Cooper Railroad continues to entertain children of all ages with seven trains running at a time. Children marvel at "Thomas the Tank Engine" as he makes his way around the modular scenery. Adults enjoy the detail of the subway as it winds its way through the grimy tunnels. Thirty car coal trains take large sweeping curves as they climb the grades of the two-track man line.
The Blue Main Line sits between the lower level and the large freight yard and passenger terminal. You can find either passenger or freight trains making their way along the rocky cliffs that identify this line. Trains coming from Union Station or the freight yard must enter this line before heading down the connector track to the large lower level main line.
Come visit our railroad to see it in action.  See our new collection of Lionel “O” Gauge trains representing railroads all across the country and all types of Locomotives.
This exhibit is made possible through the generous donations of Renee and Ebrima Darboe of Mahwah, New Jersey and the Margolis family of Ramsey, New Jersey.
Admission to the railroad is included in your ticket to the museum. If you are interested in model railroading we would welcome you as a member of our crew. The requirements are a love of the hobby, being twelve years of age or older, and becoming a paying member of the Mahwah Museum Society. If you have any questions please click here to email our train crew or call 201-512-0099 and leave a message for the train crew.
The Mahwah Museum receives operatin support from The New Jersey Historical Comission, Departmen of State.
