My husband is like a six-year-old if it’ s about trains. So we went to Trains Miniatures place and it happened we were just two of us. So the lady ( she is adorable) made a V.I.P. show for us.

I am not a miniature train lover, actually I must admit I hardly know they exist. But it was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so while it was raining and we couldn't go out hiking in the mountains. Video and practical demos...More
