“Miniature worlds” have existed as tourist attractions around the planet for decades.  Our Home and Miniature Land, now under construction near Toronto, Canada, was inspired by Germany’s Minatur Wunderland.  How do these installations differ from typical model railroads, and what can layout builders and model railroad clubs take away from surveying them?




Our Home and Miniature Land brings back memories of a visit to Roadside America (in Pennsylvania)that our family made in the early seventies. This Trainmasters TV feature segment showcases what can be done with the new technology available today,a larger space,funds,and a vision.  It is quite impressive to say the least. It is also the dream opportunity of a lifetime for any model railroader to do what they like best, and make a career out of it.

This is something that everyone should see.  I have always be fascinated with minature wonderland but to think that someone else has a vision to do this and is able to carry that vision out and bring it to fruition is really something to behold. My hats off to both of these men. It will be placed on my bucket list.

The 2 gentlemen that started up that project had to quit their jobs which meant no income for them. So I would love to know how they funded a project like that? What the did is something I have thought about doing for a long time.
