Elaine Silets has built the largest model train display in the world. Silets recently opened her train gardens to the public and thousands train lovers came by to look at her train set. She began her life as the Train Lady after her beloved late husband Harveys law career took off, leaving her in search of a hobby.That hobby became Huff & Puff Industries, a company that designs and manufactures model railroads for home and garden displays. She has 10 acres of gardens, waterfalls, lakes, trestles, bridges, and replica towns and pastoral scenes, her Gloree & Tryumfant Garden Railway in North Barrington, Illinois, its no wonder they call her the Train Lady. Her work with trains has been seen in the Nieman Marcus Christmas book, in the lobby of Chicagos Hancock Center, and in Tiffany & Co. window displays. Eleven model trains chug about the lavish gardens all-year round. The half-inch G-scale trains ply a Japanese water garden with waterfalls, a pond garden, rose gardens, a Snoopy topiary built especially for Silets grandsons, and other floral landscapes. She also has a private train museum on her property. The Harvey M. Silets Memorial museum was built in honor of the Train Ladys husband, a famous attorney who once represented Jimmy Hoffa. The museum is a scaled down replica of Greater Chicago that has 16 trains of its own, a drive-in movie theatre, and other transit-related exhibits like elevated trains and subway trains.

Although I combed the web for pictures and discovered some cool examples, this activity ended up being after I began mimicking Chris’ tank. I consistently remind myself of my impatience!! But i needed the spout designs looking much more comparable than not for continuity. In the end it resolved sensibly well.Thank you for visiting my weblog emphasizing my collection of 45mm gauge ‘G scale’ trains. Likewise, check this had a bit more broad G scale locomotives reports and insight. I am an expat Brit today staying in Michigan, United States Of America. I’ve dabbled in various scales/gauges through the years but eventually decided on G-scale about 4 years ago. I don’t actually have a railway yet as we’re planning to go home soon therefore all building plans have now been apply hold until we get satisfied. But i really do sometimes set-up some short-term track being supply the trains a run.
