SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - Main Street Toy Train Museum in Sand Springs has a chief engineer who's spending his retirement playing with trains.

Cliff McKnight decided to take his childhood love of trains and his collection and turn them into a second career.

The museum has a replica of Sand Springs and Tulsa with model streetcars. There's even a trolley line that ran from Sand Springs to Tulsa, and Bells Amusement Park and circus.

The walls are lined with antiques and interesting pieces. The museum is also a repair shop for toy trains.

The Toy Train Museum, located in downtown Sand Springs, is open Wednesday through Saturday afternoons until 6 p.m. Admission is $2.
