The description states:

A summer day in the NUT TREE PLAZA. The railroad terminal is the Toy Shop at right. Passengers board the train here for the colorful ride to the Airport and return.

–The Nut Tree grew rapidly with the upgrade of their location on U.S. Route 40 to the heavily travelled Interstate 80, which included an exit at the business. The original business closed in 1996, but while the old buildings are almost all gone, the site has been rebuilt and is active again as a commercial and entertainment venue.

This card likely dates from the 1960s.
