Default The world in miniature.

We took the kids out to celebrate Maple Weekend here in New York state today. Made our way to a couple small maple producers and then found our way to the Medina Railroad Museum. They have a huge HO scale layout and I think the kids liked this part of the day the most. Here are a few shots from the series, if you want to check out the rest, you can see them here







Caught!

Hey, wait a minute - that first one isn't a train! Love the pictures, the models are cool, and I love the way you shot the last one, good use of a small dof.

Yeah, this is one of the nicest layouts I've seen in a while. The museum of science and industry in Chicago probably has the best one that I've seen, but this one is a very close 2nd. My father used to build HO scale train layouts and I used to love looking at the pictures in the Model Railroader magazines.

Thank you, it was quite an enjoyable train layout to view.

That's why I named the thread "the world in miniature" I was actually trying to focus on the detail all around the layout and a lot of the good stuff didn't have anything to do with trains.

Yes, the week has been fantastic weatherwise and it's always fun to get out with the family and enjoy the day and find things to do. We usually start out with one thing and then fly by the seat of our pants finding other things along the way. Keeps life interesting.

So glad you & your family had such a great time together, and so glad you shared some of the photo results. These are amazingly detailed, and very well photographed.
