Words & Images/The Train Place is located on Main Street in the heart of Indiana’s Canal Town, facing the historic Whitewater Canal and the tracks of the Whitewater Valley Railroad. A unique shop featuring kerosene lamps and lanterns of a bygone era, plus the parts and pieces to maintain them. The train room has an operating layout and a selection of railroad items, memorabilia, and toy trains to choose from. Kitchen items and cast iron cookware, books both old and new, antiques and collectibles, and original artwork can also be found at our location. A selection of accessories to upcycle and re-use your canning jars for a variety of purposes is a popular area of our business.
One of the few Metamora businesses to operate year round, we’re open on Saturday and Sunday as well as most holidays. During the holiday season join us on Fridays and Saturdays for extended hours until 10 PM between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
You can find us on Metamora’s Main Street, just past the post office.
