The Trains at The Botanic Gardens

As promised yesterday, today I am sharing images of the amazing train display at the 
The display is large, filling a room that is maybe 20' x 150 feet.
Rather than share too much information that may bore some of you,
for those that are interested, 
a lot of really detailed information about the trains can be found here

For those who like pictures, follow me!

Amazing, the only word that describes it!!


  1. Thomas!

    I can only imagine what it took to build this. So elaborate!

  2. My sons always loved the train displays, but I've never seen anything to compare with this! So glad you got to see this. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  3. i enjoyed your post so much!
    my sons were doing their homework and i called and asked to take a look as they are huge fan of Thomas and his team .
    i find this special treat for eyes near Christmas .
    Blessings !

  4. Wow - there is something for everyone! Mountains, lighthouses, covered bridges, Mount Rushmore... and Greg would love the trains!

  5. Hello Debbie, it is an awesome train display! I enjoyed taking my son when he was young to see the train gardens. Great memories. I am sure it took a long time to put this one together. Great series of photos. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day.

  6. It's decided! I'm going to come live with you! You have the most amazing adventures! This is incredible. I'm going to share it with my grandsons who all love trains. We went a local botanical garden last night and saw their train garden. It is a good one, but NOTHING like this!

  7. These are fantastic displays! I can't imagine the time involved. I love how the train weaves in and out!

  8. Thank you, Debbie for taking all of us along on your trips, through your beautiful photos.
    I greatly enjoy your blog and wish you and your hubby a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from northern Michigan.

    So adorable!

    Re: your comment concerning Prednisone. I ceased eating added sugar and commercially produced foods, before my doc gave me the 11 days of Prednisone. So I was already eliminating sugar, which produces inflammation. My doc said the Rx would clear inflammation out of my body. It's not just me, saying that.

    I am continuing to eat no sugar. So after the Prednisone cleared my body of inflammation, I was/am no longer putting sugar in, to make more inflammation. So...... I can walk again!!!!!

    Plus lose weight.

    I am so happy, that my plan worked!!!!

    Most people can't imagine no sugar, especially at Holiday Time. But believe me, lack of pain, and being able to walk again, is a wonderful motivator!!!!!!!!!
