Today we went down to Pittsburgh to visit the Carnegie Science Center. It was great for Eli, and for me as well, because we got to see the miniature railroad. I used to visit it when I was little, and I always loved it. I used to think the little people came to life once all the workers were done and went home for the evening. The room the train is in is three times the size it used to be, allowing them to expand, and I just love it.
I think someday, I might get into building pastoral train scenes like the ones they've created there.
