The Klickety-Klack Railroad is an award winning model railroad and hobby shop featured in Yankee Magazine and WMUR-TV. See 28 trains operating automatically, 150 locomotives and buttons you can operate yourself to run more than 70 trains and accessories. The Klickety-Klack Railroad has been firing the imaginations of young conductors and the young at heart, for more than thirty years!
Housed in a 2,200 square foot air-conditioned building near the intersection of Elm Street and Route 109, this model railroad empire represents over 75,000 hours of work by dozens of dedicated people. Over 25 trains, 14 of which you are invited to operate, glide over bridges and through tunnels.
Life-like crossing signals flash as the trains approach the road crossing. Watch trains think for themselves as operating orders are received from the 3-color block signals. Trains stop on red, slow down on yellow, and speed through a green signal. This operation is called Automatic Train Control (ATC). You can easily follow train activity by watching the LED lights blink on and off on the master display board as the electronic ATC circuits control the huge layout.
This spectacular railroad is constructed in HO, On30 and N gauge. The dedication of its builders is evident in the realistic detail of the layout. Stop by on your vacation, browse through our hobby and gift shop, try your hand at model operation, and we are sure you will enjoy yourself!

THINGS TO WATCH
We have the following for your enjoyment: 150 locomotives, 400 freight and passenger cars, over 20 bridges, 15 tunnels, 1500 feet of track, 350 automobiles and trucks on the highways, 30 boats and ships to add a nautical flavor, and 150 animals, tame and wild. There are 1,000 lights illuminating 300 buildings and their streets, 1,500 people from all walks of life are "wandering" around the layout doing just about everything. 25,000 trees and shrubs create a green and livable atmosphere. Visit a circus, zoo, castle, granite quarry, oil refinery, city, towns, villages, beaches, the ocean, lighthouse with rotary beacon, rivers, a transportation museum display featuring rare brass engines, and watch a flashing beacon on top of a radio station tower. Also see a depiction of downtown Wolfeboro as it appeared more than a century ago.
There is much more for each and every member of the family to see than just the trains. As the day draws to an end, night begins and the houses sparkle with an interior glow, street lamps flash on, passenger car and locomotive headlights pierce the darkness at up to 70 scale miles per hour. The entire display takes on a completely different appearance and now you see things that were not apparent during the day.
THINGS TO DO
The Klickety-Klack Railroad is a "hands-on" experience. Operate the Water Fountain Restaurant, turn on six circus rides and see if there is life aboard a UFO. Ring a real trolley bell, swing the water spout arm over the steam locomotive and then return it to its original position. You can ring the church bells, turn a TV camera on in a diesel locomotive on the turntable and watch the welding in the roundhouse, start a factory chimney stack smoking, puff smoke from a steamship, and operate a tramway which runs from the city to the Castle in the Clouds. There are two buttons which create sound effects: hear the factories and machinery also hear the ships and harbor sounds. Run a narrow gauge train filled with people at the transportation museum.
Operate the quarry train and see it change direction automatically. You can run two Thomas the Tank engines and five other trains–and toot their whistles. Operate the large O scale narrow gauge trains and trolleys. We also have three N-guage trains which you can operate with diesel whistles. Work the Eldorado Gold Mine trains and operate figure skaters on the ice rink. There are over 70 buttons you can operate!
