Suburban Mansion With Outdoor Model Train Set Still Searching for Buyer

Take a ride on the 'River Forest Express'

This quirky suburban Tudor with its fully functional outdoor model train is still searching for a buyer after returning to the market nearly half a year ago. Dubbed the River Forest Express (there's even a promo video for it), this scale model train is large enough to take several people along for a ride around the one acre property. It's almost kind of like the train set that Walt Disney was obsessed with, and which also inspired the idea to create an amusement park which would later become Disneyland. The six bedroom, five bathroom River Forest home wasn't always so charming however. When it first listed in July of 2014, it was filled to the brim with frightening taxidermy. The taxidermy has since been purged, and now we have a nice, peaceful view of what this home truly has to offer. It's only taken a small $5,000 price chop over these last few months and is now asking $3.495 million.
