Perfect day yesterday as the weather turned cooler decided to take the little ones to the Minature Trains in Gailliac. Kids absoulutley loved it and we spent a good hour going round as it covers approx. 200m2. 1kl of track and 20 or more different trains and over 200 hundred wagons.
It was like a watching a ballet as it is so well orchestrated that all the trains can run simultaneously. They had automatic barriers, and all the sounds of the trains and whistles, a beautifully built model church with a wedding taking place:) houses being constructed, and lots more. As in reality the TGV have their own lane. An old telephone exchange cabinet was recycled to manage all automation with hundreds of electrical relays switches. The guy running it looked up as we entered and beamed at us and then ran over to his control box and you could tell he was having great fun.
On the way home we happened on a Vide Grenier (attic sale) and the kids decided that they would like to have the face masks. Stevie choose the miserable clown and Poppy the miserable old man and I think they are truly horrible ( the face masks that is)!!!!! Was good funhttp://trainminiaturegaillacois.o-p-i.fr/galerie.html
