A model train layout in the basement of this Cutchogue home, listed for $1.994 million, can stay with the house for the right price.

It sits atop a 10-by-24-foot cabinet. It was installed about 20 years ago for the owner's  late husband’s model train collection. “It took a lot of work, a lot of plans to build the train set, but it was his hobby,” says seller Barbara Tyree.

Electric switches control the large LGB German collectors trains that wind in an out of the little village as they make their way through mountain tunnels around the set.

The display also features miniature people, along with cows and other animals.

There is also a wine cellar on the 7-acre property, which Tyree, one of the owners of Osprey’s Dominion Winery and Vineyard in Peconic, had installed as a gift for her late husband about two decades ago. There was once a vineyard on the land.

Marianne Collins and Stanley Karanewski of Brown Harris Stevens: Hamptons Real Estate have the listing.
