There was a model train show nearby. I went to look. I had a Lionel train set as a kid. I used to build walls with my Lincoln Logs, position the cowboys and Indians on and around the walls and bust through it all with my larger scale locomotive at high speed. Great fun. Although the trains are enjoyable to watch, I am more fascinated by the little dioramas. It is so easy to transport yourself into the scene, a time and place of much better times.
I didn't notice it while there but the round barn in the distance is a landmark here in Santa Rosa.
This is reproduction of one our the shopping malls where I live.
You can tell by the cars they've stuck to a specific timeline in these scenes.
Now wouldn't you like to be here? There is a Twilight Zone episode this reminds me of.
