Event Description

Linden Depot Museum

There are two buildings in the Linden Depot Museum complex. The original Linden Depot, built in 1908, is fully restored and houses a large display of railroad memorabilia, including artifacts from the Monon and Nickel Plate Railroads which it was built to serve. The second building on the south side of the property houses a large HO model railroad with four operating trains, a monorail, blimp, trolley and hot air balloon, an animated carnival, mountain and tunnel scenery, and an animated circus. In keeping with the circus theme, there are also circus-related exhibits, including authentic vintage circus posters, star-back seats, a clown car, an elephant stand and a lion transfer cage. Also on display are two N-gauge model railroads and numerous model railroad cars and engines. Outside are four 100-year old semaphores, a Nickel Plate Caboose, a CSX caboose, and various railroad signs and signals.
