The San Diego Model Railroad Museum is to preserve the heritage of railroading through a series of miniature representations of California. The mini trains take us through mountains and to small towns, oil fields, farms, and cities back in the old times.
At 27,000 sq. ft., the museum is one the largest indoor model railroad displays in the world and the only accredited railroad museum in the USA.
Take a look of the incredible details of the mini models:
The construction of the model railroads is accomplished by volunteer club members. The operations of the trains are controlled by the computer and engineers:
Our train system has made a great impact on people’s everyday lives.
Jake’s Sunday Post Transport is a must-see!
For various post themes in 2013, I acknowledged three remarkable women. Coincidentally, their great contributions are spread in three different fields–Madame Curie in the sciences, Ping Fu in computer technology, and Malala Yousafzai in education and they are from different generations and continents.
Marie Curie (1867 – 1934) was born in Poland. She studied at Warsaw’s clandestine Floating University. In 1891, aged 24, she went to study in Paris, where she earned her higher degrees and conducted her subsequent scientific work.
Ping Fu (1958- ) was born in China. When Ping came to U.S. in 1984, she was 25 years old, had only $80 in her wallet, and spoke only three words (hello, thank you, and help) in English. Two decades later…
Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997. “People have prayed to God to spare me, and I was spared for a reason — to use my life for helping people” quote from ” I Am Malala.”
Listen to Malala speech at The UN Assembly

The video is, in fact, a timelapse. SDO collected one frame every 12 seconds. It is presented here at 30 FPS, so every second corresponds to six minutes of real-time. according to NASA, corresponds to solar material at a temperature of around 50,000 Kelvin (that’s close to 90,000 degrees Fahrenheit, for those wondering).

These ancient treasures are on display at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin:
The Pergamon Museum truly is a world-class museum. It houses the gigantic 52-foot-wide Pergamon Altar, 95-foot-high Market Gate of Miletus, and 575 BC Babylonian Ishtar gate. All were carefully reassembled and reconstructed for the display. The collection’s focus is the Middle East, including Egypt and Iran.
Many ancient Chinese bronze treasures (13th Century BC to 200 BC) are well-preserved in the Xi’an and Shanghai Museums:
There are two remarkable ancient treasures in the Xi’an Museum. One is The Neolithic period water jar, take a look…

Fredericksburg is one of the charming towns in the Texas Hill Country.
Many old buildings in Fredericksburg have been restored and converted into delightful shops, art galleries, designer jewelry stores, antiques shops, and authentic German restaurants. The slide below may give a glimpse of the architecture of the town:
Fredericksburg, TX has a rich history. It was settled in 1840 by a group of German immigrants looking for a better way of life.
