A Miniature Railway or Two for the Holidays!
Miniature Railroad & Village at the Carnegie Science Center. If you are in the Pittsburgh vicinity, I would take whomever wants to go. It's for kids of all ages. It was a great day to go because the kids are still mostly in school and it was a rainy day.
The kids who were there had a great time and so did my big kid! Mostly set in western Pennsylvania, it includes a part of the steel mills, Forbes Field where the Pirates were actually fun to watch, a western PA small town the incline that provides transportation up and down the hillside near downtown Pittsburgh, Fallingwater, a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece and Luna Park, an amusement park. It was a lot of fun to see it again and they are taking very good care of it.
Museum of Science and Industry and check out The Great Train Story with its 30 plus trains that go from Chicago to Seattle. We also went to the Chicago Botanic Garden to see their Garden Railway. They have the Wonderland Express at the moment. Here are some photos from the outdoor display around Halloween.
Winter Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory featuring The Nutcracker this year. Get out and enjoy the holiday events in your town or city. Looks like everyone that commented on the giveaway is going to get something! It ends tomorrow morning! It took me forever to get this post together. Hope it makes sense! Talk to you later.
