This is the seventh post in a long series about our trip to Longwood Gardens the end of October 2012. One of the outdoor places we visited was the miniature train garden – a real child (DH and I are 6 going on 7 each) pleaser, for sure.
We had lots of little ones oo-ing and aw-ing while we snapped away, trying the catch the trains while they choo-chooed over bridges, into tunnels, and mostly around miniatures of Longwood Gardens buildings and hardscape. For model train afficionados, these are G scale trains.
We had such fun capturing the moving marvels, it didn’t matter that they were all sorts of trains, some miniatures of real trains, some child-like (Thomas, the Toy Train), and some just cute.
Since there were a lot of adults, not just children at the exhibit, I suspect there were more inner children and many volunteers running their own trains to amuse us, but I didn’t ask and I didn’t take pictures of the signs to check out later. Oh well, we were mesmerized…
We have more photos we’ll post later, so look for them soon! Just in time for the holidays! What are you doing to get ready? Are you already worn out? Are you still in anticipation mode (our attitude exactly) ?
