Garden railroading anyone? (going 56k)

Here are a few photos of a 1/24 scale train layout with ponds,waterfalls, and bonsi trees. I've been working on this for a little over 2 years.
Hope someone likes it.

A walk in the park.







If any one would like to see more, I have lots of photos.

Man, I've always loved trains. I have a cheap one in storage to use when we get in a house where I can set it up again. Love what you've done. Would love to see more wide angle type shots of the area. Thanks for sharing!
