The Moores said they find items for their layouts at places such as Zionsville, Ind., the Internet and shows, and people also donate items.
“I keep saying, ‘we’re done,’” Marilyn said with a laugh.
But, Dewain added, “It’s a never-ending hobby.”
The Moores also have a collection of old tractors that they’ve restored.
Besides Kevin (who does the farming), the couple has a daughter, Melinda Willard of the Armstrong area, and six grandchildren.
Go to Rossville and turn west (left, if you’re coming from Danville) at the stop light. Continue for 5-6 miles to County Road 880. Turn north (right). The Moores live in the second house on the left, with a railroad crossing sign at the driveway. Their address is 36078 North 880 East Road, Rossville.
Dewain and Marilyn Moore will have an open house from 1-4 p.m. every weekend through December, starting this Saturday and Nov. 25, so people can see their collection of railroad items and tracks.
The collection also is open by appointment, and is accessible to the handicapped. Call 497-5024 for an appointment or for special arrangements.
Admission is free, but people are asked to bring canned items for a food pantry during the holidays.
