Holiday Train Time

Bridge Eiffel Tower Fountain Ladybug train Purple track Thomas Group twoThis post is for all our train buddies at the clinics. On Thursday night I went to see the Holday Train at the US Botanic Garden, right near the US Capitol. Every year in the East Gallery they put up a fanciful landscape of mountains, caves, and dramatic vistas adorned with marvelous architecture–all crafted out of natural materials and threaded with train tracks with model trains zooming around. This year the theme is “World’s Fair,” so you can see the Eiffel Tower, the Space Needle, the London Eye, and all kinds of other great stuff  ingeniously crafted out of sticks and pine cones–and some delightful fairy houses crafted in amazing detail–right down to the seashell bathtubs! And did I mention that this year the trains include Thomas, Percy and Gordon? I hope many of our train fans can see the exhibit–it’s free and open daily until January 5–and on Tuesdays and Thursdays in December until 8:00 pm.
