The Roads and Rails Museum sits near the center of Old Town Frederick. You enter into the museum, and the first thing you see is the underground model Metrorail display with the trains arriving and leaving the platforms. You then enter into the big room, and you see one of the largest model train displays in the world. The big mountain on the one side has a tunnel passing through it. You see towns, farms, and a long train trestle. You watch the freight trains and passenger trains roll by you. You continue to walk around, and you see more mountains, more towns, amusement parks, streams, and lakes. It takes a good long while to take a walk around to see everything.
Once you are done, you can walk around the gift shop. You can buy model trains, t-shirts, and other railroading memorabilia.
