Garden Railroad Exhibit

Do you know what a GARDEN RAILROAD is? Tall Club members found out when they visited Bob D’s house.

Consisting of 115 ft of track for the main railway, 100 ft of trolley course, 2 smaller rail lines, 53 trestles 2 bridges, a tunnel, and more, this model railway is a sight to behold. Bob even has 24 buildings, a small waterfall, and a pond. Bob shared information about steam engines and planned a scavenger hunt with a list of things to find in his garden railroad.

Following the tour of the Garden Railroad, guests visited the Flossmooor Station and Brewery for a late lunch. This charming restaurant is an old, converted train station. Everyone enjoyed the house-crafted beers and pub food. Photos: Dawn D.
