The Railfan Observation Deck is ideally located behind the Main Street Shops. Its location allows optimal view of trains coming and going to the Manchester Yard. The deck is dedicated to the memory of Tyron Elliot, a local attorney and railfan who spearheaded the annual Railroad Days celebration from its inception until his death in 2010. The gazebo is equipped with two picnic tables and is a perfect location for photographs!

Brochures are available at the Regional Visitors Information Center in Warm Springs, as well as the West Point and Columbus Visitor Information Center.
