Experience the Real Toy Story
A pirate spies menacingly from the crow’s nest of a nearby Brigantine. Jousting knights prepare for battle in the courtyard of a medieval castle. A farmer feeds his pigs in the barnyard of his early 1900’s farmstead.
No, it’s not a Hollywood back lot. It’s Toy Town Junction. It’s where we bring out the kid in everyone. And it all began with one boy, a single train, and two amazing parents.
In 1941, five-year-old Richard Worden received his first toy train. With the country just emerging from the Great Depression, his parents sacrificed to purchase the Marx Copper electric train from the Montgomery Ward Christmas catalog. Because that’s what parents do.
