Northlandz is a model railroad layout and museum located near Flemington, New Jersey, built by Bruce Williams Zaccagnino. The museum also features over 200 dolls from around the world, a 94-room dollhouse and a 2,000-pipe organ. Northlandz boasts hundreds of bridges and trains. Most of the rolling stock is old, and the engines are model power engines. The museum also has a narrow gauge railroad, with replica stock.

Bruce Williams and Northlandz[edit]

The giant Northlandz was created 25 years ago as Bruce and his wife Jean's first home was being built in 1972. When builders would leave for the day Williams would go to the basement to begin making scenes. Mountain passes were erected complete with bridges and buildings. Workers returning the next day, removed Bruce's new addition so they could continue their work.
