Reiman Gardens train


All aboard

Dennis Sailsbury and Sarah Rummery put some finishing touches on the garden railroad display in the children's garden at Reiman Gardens. The display, which opened last week, features G-scale (approximately 1:29) trains running on four tracks. Three of the tracks wind through terrain featuring replicas of campus landmarks constructed by local woodworkers. An elevated track passes over the heads of visitors. The trains run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Photo by Bob Elbert.
