Overview
Additional Information

Visitors are transported to a magical miniature world as six G-scale trains and trolleys run down, around, and above the lush indoor tropical setting of Nicholas Conservatory. Miniature Rockford landmarks and willow trestle bridges add to the enchanting ambiance.

The trains and trolleys in the exhibit are painted and personalized to depict those that traversed Rockford throughout its history. Also featured are intricately detailed bridges and structures expertly decorated with a variety of natural botanical materials such as pine cones, acorns, and sticks. Six structures are part of Sinnissippi Station: Nicholas Conservatory, Sinnissippi Floral Clock and rose garden trellis, Sinnissippi Park Music Shell, the Trolley Station, and a replica of the Symbol sculpture.

Regular Conservatory admission fees apply for viewing the exhibit, and vary according to age and residency; discounted fees are available for youth, children, seniors, and veterans. Complete listings of fees and facility/display operating hours are posted at www.nicholasconservatory.com/sinnissippi-station, and are available at 815-987-8858. The website also contains a guide with fascinating history and information about each miniature structure and trolley in the exhibit.
