A Tiny Village

I couldn't wait to share these pictures with you. I've always enjoyed looking at miniatures and trains. When we visited Epcot in Orlando, we got to see this wonderful small village that had a train running through. There are lots of pictures, but I want you to be able to see how grand it is. If you look carefully, you can see so much detail. I hope you like this too.


The little people who live here sure keep up with the grounds:)



A railroad bridge





Love the greenhouse. Look at the little flats of plants on the ground.

It didn't suddenly get dark. It must have been the giant with the silly point and shoot camera:)


The farmer was the only person who was brave enough to be out with all of the giants viewing the village.
I bet he had so much work to do that even that wouldn't stop him. There's a tiny pig to the right of the picture.


Look at the little ladder on the closest tree on the right. What a cute orchard!


Here comes the train.

I was like a little child with this display. I kept pointing out things to the kids. I loved seeing this!


***I try to limit my pictures on posts, but I got a bit crazy! I won't make a habit of it. Thanks!

  1. Thank you for sharing these fabulous pics. Brings back lots of memories. My husband is a train enthusiast and my daddy worked his whole life for C & O Railroad. My husband had an entire village similar to this (not as grand of scale I'm sure). We had it set up in tables he made for it in the basement. He and the kids loved to go down there and play trains for hours.

  3. Hubby has just begun to revisit model trains. He is building an 'N' scale set up. We have a very interesting dining room table at the moment! He enjoyed seeing your pictures as much as I did.

  4. It's been years since I visited Epcot even though it's only about a 3.5 hr drive from me. The miniature exhibit looks fascinating - it's no wonder you wanted to share your experience!

  5. It looks like a lovely place. I love all of the detail. I can't wait to show my husband these pictures, because those trees have been planted there and they all look like small Bonsai trees. The look of age but still tiny.
    I bet you enjoyed it. All I could think of was that series of books I loved as a kid called the Borrowers. That would have been so much fun to see tiny people.
    I am glad you are posting pictures. I hope you are feeling better.

  17. Oh how I love this! A land of miniatures brings wonder to the imagination. I want to create a small fairy land somewhere in my garden this year. We all deserve to be a child again. Even if just for a moment.
