The default camera is an Axis 360 located at the top of the Visitor Center (train station) and 2 static cameras facing north and south on the other side of the intersection. Links to all 3 cameras are in this description. Do you see Tiny Tim’s toy and train store in the south chamber? It’s amazing, and well worth a visit.
