1 the Amtrak Station
Walking around the platforms of the Toledo station, one can easily imagine the heyday of American railroading. If you look hard enough, you will still se a B&O sign hanging around. The lobby of the Amtrak station has a Toledo Scale on display, probably an original (and in the same place) from the old days when they weighed freight coming through. The rest of the lobby is decorated in art deco style, and the floor is even well done!

The Toledo Zoo has a Zoo train they call the Safari

Just a guess, but it could be 2 foot or 24" gauge....
