Trains! Tennessee in G
April 9 - December 31 2011
Train and garden enthusiasts of all ages will be fascinated with the delightful architecture, landscapes and realistic effects in the Cheekwood’s Model Railroad Garden exhibition, Trains! Tennessee in G. This enchanting outdoor exhibition takes visitors across Tennessee with model trains, miniature representations of the state’s historic landmarks, and colorful gardens. The buildings have been intricately handcrafted using natural materials, including twigs, bark, leaves, acorns and pebbles. The landscape is made up of over 2,500 tiny trees, shrubs, groundcovers and flowering plants in 250 varieties. Train sound effects and a waterfall capture visitors’ imaginations, while tiny people and animals give the exhibit a storybook feel. Click here for more information.
