We stumbled about this by total accident several years ago! In Tucson there is a group called the Tucson Garden Railway Society. The members all have model trains set up in their back yards. (I can ABSOLUTELY see my husband doing this when he is retired.)
Once a year they have a weekend when they select several “train gardens” that the public can tour! It cost $5 per adult and is free for children. This weekend was that weekend, so it’s too late for this year, but you can add your name to their mailing list and they’ll let you know when the 2012 tour is going to take place!
I took a ton of pictures. The details they put into it amaze me. At one location the owner is in a wheelchair, so everything is raised and accessible him. Another location just started their garden so you can see their ideas beginning to take shape. It’s always a fun weekend!
What did you do this weekend?
PS. Tomorrow (3-15) is the last day to use the code BOYZ for 10% off any of these fabric (yes, even the ones that are on sale AND the basics that never go on sale!!!) Find them here.
