I guess it's ok for a photo opt but seriously it's a drive by attraction. Unless you have a goal of travelling around the country to see all of the "Worlds Biggest-------"

This wagon would fit in perfectly in another Illinois small town called Casey. They came to have "The world's Largest" items. I could see this Lincoln being a "World's Largest", too.

So this was voted the best roadside attraction by readers of the readers digest - I did not know it was still in print or that people still read it. If your passing by you might as well stop.

Definitely a tourist stop, this wagon sits in front of a bowling alley on Route 66. Not much to say except it is in the book, on the route, and you will stop to see it if you follow Route 66.

If you are in town it's worth a stop. There isn't much to do except look at the wagon. They did have a historical plaque.
