Take I-575 to Exit 11, Sixes Road. Turn west (back over bridge if traveling north on I-575) and proceed approximately 2 miles to Woodridge Subdivision sign on right. The street is Woodridge Chase. Turn right on Woodridge Chase and go to the sixth house on the right, 2655 Woodridge Chase. Please park in the driveway or in the street, NOT on the grass across from our house - it's the neighbors and they frown on cars parking there. Enter through the garage access door; it will be marked to lead you to the train room. Drive safely.
