The Ultimate Train Garden

While over at my brother's and sister-in-law's garden, she brought me across the street to see her neighbor's train garden.  Little did I know that this was not just your average backyard railroad engineer!

This is a big time railroad with the initials of the owners done in black iron and mounted over the railroad grounds.

His name is Brad Bennett watercolor artist and professional photographer

December on  Michigan Avenue

The building of the railroad is a hobby that has become a passion and put him in place as an expert among his colleagues.

Brad has built all of the trestles, track and buildings.

There is full landscaping throughout the railroad areas with evergreens and flowering plants.

The houses he builds look so lifelike with attention to to every detail.

Even the automobiles are to scale and vintage!

You are probably wondering where are the trains?  They are all stacked neatly in Brad's office, shelf after shelf of colorful and shiny trains.

Enjoy Brad's website his diversity as a watercolor artist and photographer, producing wonderful sports posters and beautifully framed artwork for homes and offices.
