Garden Rail – Miniature Railway Exhibition

Originally posted on ww2vintagepinupgirl:

This weekend (15th March 2014), we went to Warwickshire Exhibition Centre’s Garden Rail show! It was fantastic, with everything from 2 Gauge to T Gauge! As usual I was completely fascinated with all the little things and aging techniques. Some of the little people were completely hilarious and the hand built trains were so awe inspiring! Some of my favourites were the industrial set ups that reminded me of Tysley’s depot and a 1930′s tin railway with original and repro pieces (yes they actually make them just like the originals!).

Here are some photos I took on my way around…

Model Railway – Go and see the biggest little European Railway in Canada

Model Railway

Go and SEE THE BIGGEST LITTLE EUROPEAN RAILROAD IN CANADA!dsc_0048

Experience 4000 square feet of family fun with more than 1800 houses and over 16,000 hand painted little people. The Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad is Canada’s largest Marklin lay-out, with up to 40 computer controlled trains running through very detailed landscaping with European style towns and houses. Come step into a WORLD CLASS miniature fantasy world!

As something completely different we have a car system running on some roads and we are the only public display in North America with that feature. So come check it out – it is like magic!0700-2

If you would like a unique experience on your trip through Osoyoos, drop by the railroad display and have a look. Caution: Train Buffs have been known to become slightly mesmerized by the volume of exquisite detail available to be seen!

http://www.osoyoosrailroad.comdsc_0036a

Osoyoos historically /ˈsuːjuːs/ SOO-ews) is a town in the southern part of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia near the border with Washington state, between Penticton and Omak. The town is also adjacent to the Indian Reserve of the Osoyoos Indian Band. The origin of the name Osoyoos was the word suius meaning “narrowing of the waters” in the local Okanagan language (Syilx’tsn). The “O-” prefix is not indigenous in origin and was attached by settler-promoters wanting to harmonize the name with other O-names in the Okanagan Country (Oliver, Omak, Oroville, Okanogan). There is one local newspaper, the Osoyoos Times.dsc_0074

The town’s population of 4,845 swells in the summer months with visitors from elsewhere in British Columbia and neighboring Alberta, as well as elsewhere in Canada. There is also a newer contingent of international visitors, supported by the proximity to the Kelowna International Airport about 1.5 hours north of the town. There is also a rapidly growing year-round retiree population as is evident with the recent boom of condominium and suburban development (though somewhat thwarted by the 2008–09 economic downturn). There are another 1,892 people surrounding the town within the “Okanagan-Similkameen A” area.

Tourism in the Osoyoos area has become a large contributor to the local economy. This tourism is brought on by the many amenities in the Osoyoos area.odmr16

Osoyoos Lake is “the warmest freshwater lake in Canada” according to the town of Osoyoosand the BC Parks System, with reported average summer water temperatures of 24°C (75°F). The lake is surrounded by kilometres of beaches (public and private), parks and picnic grounds, such as Gyro Beach, Lions Centennial Park, Kinsmen Park, Legion Beach and Haynes Point Provincial Park. There are also major plans to revitalize the waterfront along the town core, spurred on by recent major developments such as the Watermark Beach Resort which include increased public space and an expanded marina.

Spotted Lake is a saline endorheic alkali lake located northwest of Osoyoos.

There are two centres dedicated to the dry landscape of the area. The Osoyoos Desert Centre is located 3 km north of Osoyoos off Highway 97, while the Nk’mip Desert Cultural Centre is located adjacent to the Nk’mip Winery on the Osoyoos Indian Reserve. The area is served by two golf courses: the Osoyoos Golf and Country Club and the Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course.Osoyoos TownThis picture of Osoyoos in BC, Canada, was taken from Highway 3, east of the town.
