I'm still partial to Fred the Forney... suggested by Ed years ago. 

I can't take credit for "Fred The Forney"... that goes to Mark Edry:

The last time I was there (1986?), it was still the "Classic" Edaville.
Thankfully, I did NOT see the declining years and decide to NEVER go back.

A smart man once told me that Railroad "attractions" like Edaville
must decide WHAT they are going to be.
Will they be:
1.  A Railroad historical preservation/restoration museum
OR
2.  A Theme Part with a Train Ride.

Happily, operations like the C&TS and WW&F have chosen #1.
Edaville however, has chosen #2.

Ellis Atwood must be "spinning in his grave"!
