Default Minature trains

I visited the attraction called Entertrainment Junction in West Chester, Ohio recently and captured the following. They claim to be the largest G scale indoor model train displays in the world. It was indeed large--took about 2 hours to walk through: lots of details in the layouts which are set up by time period. Nikon D300s w/ Nikon 12-24mm f/4; hand held, no flash.

2 hours to walk through, huh? That must be a huge setup. It's incredibly realistic looking from what I can see from your photos, too (which are really nice captures).

Thanks Ordo and Jim. I am a model railroader myself and of course took my time with the exhibits. Never the less, it is a big exhibit and still a work in progress. I will post some pictures from my own (much smaller) layout in a separate thread soon.

The 12-24mm lens worked well indoors to capture the wide angles. And the D300s' noise control is very impressive (none applied to the posted images).

Jelpee,

I wish I had a digital the last time I was in hamburg. They had the most incredible museum with mini trains of Europe. It took up couple of floors. Your post just reminded me of it.
