New Model Train Display

The new interactive model train on display at Legacy Museum is the work of Mr. Lewis Freeman of Gabbettville, Georgia.  Mr. Freeman spent over twenty years creating a working scale model of the Southern Crescent Limited.  Many of the parts were handcrafted in his shop with hand operated machine shop tools. He meticulously measured and created each part per real world specifications. Sadly, Mr. Freeman passed away before he completed his model train project.  Mr. Jim Biagi and his students from West Georgia Technical College completed the project. Many hands have contributed to the finished model now on display, but none more loving than Mr. Freeman's.
