ABC Wed. - "I" = Interesting

Today's letter for ABC Wednesday is "I". Since I couldn't think of anything I chose a word "Interesting". These two photos are from a miniature train set display in Pittsburgh. Most of the scenes they have are replicas of somewhere around Pittsburgh. Here you can see the train traveling through the hills and the coal mine. The display is huge and fills up a large room with a guy sitting in the room all day to conduct the tracks and any problems. You can find this train at the Carnegie Center in Pittsburgh. We went to visit the Titanic display they had but I wasn't allowed to take photos of that. This train display has a stream, amusement park, and numerous other things displayed. It's a wonderful display if you ever get the chance to go.

I love miniatures of both real and imaginary places! I'd love to see this one! But I doubt if I ever will so thanks for posting these pictures. :)

Oh, my brother in law would love this! He is crazy about model trains and miniatures. Great idea!

Very cool! There is a miniature railroad place near Lancaster that we went on a field trip to when I was in Third grade called Roadside America. It was indeed interesting : )! I had a hard time with I too! I live in Pa too. Isn't this a great state! God bless.

Hubby has some miniature trains, but not on a track, we have them in the snug, as ornaments on the plate rack! Sounds wacky but looks good.

Neat photos. I love looking at train sets. I never got started with them myself, I knew it would become an obsession and suck my accounts dry to feed my habit. But I love looking at detailed sets like this.

A very good "I"......The train set is awesome...
