Model Trains

If you are a fan of G scale model trains, the LGB model train display at Living Desert in Palm Springs is a must-see attraction. California travel expert Veronica Hill of www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com tours one of the best examples of model train layouts in California. This adorable train set features more than 3000 feet of track and the world’s largest G-scale wooden trestle. You’ll be charmed as seven unique trains chug by old mining towns, below Mount Rushmore and past the historic Wigwam Motel. One of my favorite parts of track follows the Grand Canyon Railway from Williams Depot to the Grand Canyon South Rim, where passengers are dropped off at the historic El Tovar hotel. Nearby, above the rushing Colorado River, you’ll find a cluster of Indian Cliff Dwellings and Navajo hogans. Next time you’re in Southern California, don’t miss this fun model train exhibit. It’s sure to captivate the entire family. LGB Model Train Exhibit The Living Desert 47-900 Portola Avenue, Palm Desert, CA 92260 760-346-5694 www.livingdesert.org
