The Mebane Train Layout was designed and built to display a collection of trains left to the city of Mebane by Mr. Tommy Long. Mr. Long had one of the biggest collections in the Alamance County area, worth over $250,000. The Train Group has been working on this for over two years now. They have done everything from building massive display tables, to detailed landscape modeling. They will all tell you, "We have come far, but still have far to go."
