Garden of the Month

Chicago Botanic Garden Trains 

This premier botanic garden features an extensive garden for outdoor model G-scale trains, run during 3 seasons, featuring over 1/4 mile of track, and often 10 trains running at a time on various tracks.  Model landscapes and buildings take you to famous sites from coast to coast, such as the White House, Sears tower, and Hollywood.  Visit the garden website for more information on all 26 of their gardens, extensive educational programs, library, shop, trials, and more. Sample garden photos are on this website.
