Longwood Gardens Miniature Train Garden – 7

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…
