A Visit to the Train Lady

Not too far from us lives The Train Lady. She owns a company that manufactures and installs model railroad layouts. Once a year, she opens up her home and grounds so the public can see some of her setups. Sounds like the perfect activity for a trainiac like my son, doesn't it? Here are some of the pictures I took this weekend:

At the Train Lady's place, trains are everywhere! Even the bathroom was decorated with a train motif.

Alex is riding in the boxcar.

My husband and son admiring one of the train layouts. The Train Lady's daughter took a picture of Alex in his Amtrak outfit for her mother.

Inside a building set up to look like the outside of a train station. This layout includes some Chicago landmarks, like Millennium Park. We're looking down at the setup from the control area.

I wonder if Alex will try to get a job working here when he's older....

I looks like the perfect place to take a youngster for an outing. That lady must indeed be train obsessed.
