Top Ten/Honorable Mention: The Oliver Train


Long story short...  HBO's John Oliver took note of WNEP's backyard train and the associated Talkback calls.  He decided to make us a "bigger one, a better one, an almost irresponsibly large one."  The station had it trucked to the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton, and 5,000 people stopped by to see it on its first weekend.


I couldn't make it on that first weekend, but I did stop by a few days later.  To say the least, it's impressive-- and there's nothing like the sound of model trains circling the tracks.
