Longwood Gardens Railroad

This whimsical garden railway at Longwood Gardens
signals the arrival of fall!!


This years display featured this circus railroad,
complete with circus animals.


Sweet Hersey cars on this train...


and trains carrying pumpkins, mums and gourds!!


A typical yellow train carrying coal,
I loved the light on the leaves in the background!!


There were new bridges and new water elements this year!!


A beautiful seasonal display!!

These pictures were taken during our recent visit on October 7th.
