Jingle Rails

Yesterday my wife and I took one of our Grandsons to see Jingle Rails at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis.


The Eiteljorg is an art museum that features Native American and Western Art. They have some really amazing pieces there, and it is always an interesting place to visit. But yesterday was about a truly impressive miniature train display, and a young man who really loves his trains.

This exhibit recurs annually, I believe. The construction of the landscapes is amazing, done using natural materials, mostly of the plant variety.20200104_123205

As you can see, someone (s) spent a lot of time and effort to build this thing, and it is well worth the time to visit. It runs through January 21st this year.


As I put this together, I am realizing that I said it was all about the trains earlier, but I now see that for me it was really the landscape they had constructed.


So I guess I learned something about myself, and had a good time with my wife and Grandson.  I think that constitutes time well spent.
