Model Train Store in Bridgeport, MI

It is with great sadness we have said farewell to our summer train rides as well as our Halloween Spook Train!

WE WILL continue operating the well-stocked model railroad hobby shop!

In 1979 William Stenger Jr. started building his dream railroad.  He opened to the public in 1982 while still considering it just his hobby.  Bill loved designing & building Junction Valley Railroad & most of all loved driving his train around every day.  He thoroughly enjoyed sharing his story and passion for railroading.  He was a proud, proud man!
Although we were never very busy, Bill kept his doors open to share this one of a kind unique gift.  As Bill’s health started declining he passed away unexpectedly in June of 2012.  We made it through that year with heavy hearts only to have Bill’s beloved wife Lillian pass in December of the same year.
Our family decided at that time to keep the summer train running in Bill’s honor.  The time has come to refocus our efforts in the Hobby Shop.
There are SO many people to thank for traveling on this 35 year journey with us.  Your love, support, generosity and hard work will never be forgotten.   A special than you goes out to ALL the volunteers who worked tirelessly to help Bill fulfill his dream.  The friendships that were made will be treasured forever!!
May God Bless YOU ALL!
The family of William & Lillian Stenger
And staff of JVRR
