Holiday Garden Railway

The Holiday Garden Railway 2005 is an exhibit of seven G-scale model train lines in the garden, surrounded by more than 40 miniature houses and buildings decorated for the holidays. The scale-model buildings include replicas of Independence Hall, Betsy Ross House, the Fisher Fine Arts Library at Penn and many other structures from the region, all constructed using natural materials. Acorns, moss, bark and twigs form the exterior décor, accented for the holidays with tiny decorations of tinsel and beads. Twinkling lights surround the display, which is set on about 1/8 of an acre. Through December 31.
