March, 2014 at the Carnegie Science Center on the North Side, Pittsburgh

        Grandson watching Thomas zing past. That is one honkin' big High Rail layout. Speakina' steel mills....

The Carnegie Science Center Layout is amazing! I was there in June and couldn’t believe the amount of Legacy and Visionline models they had on the shelves! My favorite loco was the Lionel Legacy NS IT heritage unit...

I know! The static shelf displays are a big bonus one wasn't expecting.

I'm so old I remember a much smaller layout in the basement of Buhl Planetarium 

 

This public domain pic is of the current Sharon Steel replica:

    

Anyone here who doesn't know about this......shall we say.....cultural landmark can read the story at the Wiki thingy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...Railroad_%26_Village

Grand Tetons in the background. We rode across Jenny Lake on a ferry and then walked 2mi in to get that pic. The UP was a Park portal in those days.
