Sunday post: Transportation

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.

The detail work is exceptional!

People are waiting for train at the station and automobiles waiting for the train to go by.

The train is coming…

Do you see a car accident at the bottom right corner?

Ooops, there is a car accident on the street…

Notice the road construction work

Watch out, we are fixing the road right behind you…

See the details of the bridge and rocks.

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.

  2. I had no idea it was the largest indoor display! I’ll have to remember that the next time I take my kids there. They love going through each display, even though they’re seeing them many times by now.

  3. Perfect for Perspective challenge. Looking at the first photo, I was wondering if that was in Montana or Colorado and then you mentioned where you took out. I could have been fooled. I’ve been there once – real great details how they did it.
