Model Train Festival
On Christmas Eve Day (that's Dec 24th) we took Theo and Vivian (but really, Theo) to see the Model Train Festival at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma. It was well worth the drive. I don't really know what they normally have, but they had every open area crammed with a different modelling club displaying their model train layout. All sizes from N-scale to actual ride-able trains (very appropriately sized for a toddler) were represented. My favorites were the N-scale layouts, since you could fit a lot more tracks and details in the same amount of space. The larger models ended up being essentially just three tracks side-by-side without the detailed towns that N-scale allowed. If you're in the area, the exhibit runs through New Year's, and I highly recommend it, even without kids.
