We are saddened to hear of the loss of Tom Groff who owned the Choo Choo barn in Strasberg, PA. I believe Tom was 77. While only meeting Tom a couple of times, I found him to come off as a good and decent man. He regularly gave to charities and helped the least among us. Surely he has earned a place with our Lord and savior in heaven. Our prayers to the Groff family in their time of grief. Tom will be missed.
The hand built model railroad exhibit was originally built by George Groff, Toms father. Tom continued the work by adding many animations to the layout that he designed and built himself. Today the third generation of the Groff family continues it's operation and the exhibit is not only great to see but remains as a Legacy to Thomas and George Groff.
