K-Land

K-Land (K-nex room) 

 

The rides in this room were not made from a kit. The racer was based on the ride at Kennywood and the Ferris Wheel was based on the K-nex version. The overhead lights are timed so it represents a full day. The rides in this room are constantly being worked on and improved, like a real amusement park.

Welcome to the Kruger Street Toy and Train Museum. We are housed in a 1906 fully restored Victorian school house. It operated as a school from 1906 to 1991. It still has the original tin ceilings made by Wheeling Corrugating, and the yellow pine floors and red oak woodwork. You can even see the slate blackboards in some of the rooms.
