We took a little trip to Berwyn’s Toys & Trains yesterday. It’s on Route 66, just a 10-minute drive from our house.
Kathryn told me about the place, and indeed, it is the stuff that little train-loving hearts dream of. Big train-loving hearts, too.
Given the time and money (because dag, it’s a time-consuming and expensive hobby), I’d probably have a miniature town set up. I was always enthralled with the attic recreation of the town in Beetlejuice. And hello, I worked my butt off on the dollhouse. As for the train part of the typical scale model setup? Whatever, that’s a bonus. I just want to make perfect little gardens and houses, with a cute but quaint shopping square, and funny little details.
I’ll settle for arranging and rearranging our Thomas toy train table with the kids. For now.
