Franklin Park Conservatory and the Columbus Main Library have creative model train displays created by Applied Imagination (click for article) a company founded by Paul Busse.
Here’s the Enchanted Express Garden Railway at Franklin Park in Columbus Ohio. You can see the Three Little Pigs Houses, Rapunzels Tower and the Old Woman in the Shoe House and Cinderella’s Castle to name a few.. I think Charlie could watch the display revolve all day long, waiting for the trains to reappear, around and around.
A peaceful spot to relax and use your imagination.
I LOVE trains and could watch them go around and around just like he does. I hope I am never too old for this.
My thirteen-year-old grandson and I built an N-gauge model railroad this summer on a 4 x 6 foot plywood board. It has 12 switch tracks and two reversing loops! Very complicated wiring! It was a blast!
Model trains are delightful; this track looks amazing!
