Train Layout at the Botanical Gardens

Train Layout at the Botanical Gardens
Everyone loves a train, and I’m no exception. My father has a 1940’s Lionel model train, and every year we would put it up around the Christmas tree. There was never much room, but, as children, we were delighted when it would round the corner, toot the horn and go through the tunnel. It even had “smoke” coming from the steam engine. I had so many wonderful memories of those times that I later bought my husband the same train. If you, too, have a fondness for trains, you’re in for a treat. Because this year, the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is hosting a Seasonal Model Train Show from December 15-24. The show will include trains and layouts of many scales with many themes. There will be a large (22′ x 17′) layout based on scenes from the Skunk Train (CWR) as it was between 1915 and 1930, one of Fort Bragg with the holiday lighted truck parade, and even one in a pizza box! Fun for kids from 3 to 93! Free with Gardens admission. 9 am to 4 pm – Gardens Deck and Lath House. For more information, contact Store Manager Cynthia Lambie at 707-964-4352 ext 18.
