Toy Train Barn – Argyle, Wisconsin

Toy Train Barn is a rural Wisconsin attraction featuring the personal toy train collection of Buck Guthrie.

Former train engineer Buck Guthrie turned an abandoned dairy barn into a unique experience for all ages. Guthrie, who has played with and collected toy trains since his childhood, purchased the dilapidated barn in the early 2000s and set about creating the massive display from his collection of tin toy trains dating back to the Depression. Visitors to the Barn are treated to intricately-crafted dioramas portraying rural and city life with trains moving throughout each scene.

The attraction is open year-round with the rideable outdoor train available during the warmer months.
