Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny

For this week’s Photo Challenge, we’re given the word Tiny. Yesterday, while on a spontaneous visit to our local mountains, I visited an HO Model Train display at Lake Arrowhead. This photo is my entry in the challenge, Tiny, a tiny train passing a tiny town with tiny cars, as well. ~SueBeeweekly-photo-challenge-tiny

Per Wikipedia: “The name HO is derived from the fact that its 1:87 scale is approximately half that of O scale which was the smallest of the series of older and larger 0, 1, 2 and 3 scales introduced by Märklin around 1900. In most English-speaking markets it is pronounced “aitch-oh” and written with the letters HO today, but in German it is pronounced “hah-null“, and still written with the letter H and number 0.”

    I am a big model railroad enthusiast and love any chance to observe and learn from other’s layout. This is a great looking one.

      Thanks for visiting, Joe. The train layout was really fun to see!

    Terrific – reminded me of Christmas’s past when my dad and brothers would put together their train sets. I always loved them.

    I would like to have been at that show. I love model railways.

      It was a really nice display. Two men, obviously passionate about their hobby, were working on various parts, while two young kids sat in the inner circle playing some sort of electronic game. It saddened me. To be fair, maybe they’d been there all day and had seen enough, or weren’t allowed to touch, but ….

        That sounds as though it might be true about not touching from my experience.

        Yes, it’s possible considering the countless hours spent setting it all up.

    I love HO scale! And love train museums. Sadly there are none in my area, but I went to a great one in Ohio last year.

      I do, too! We have a terrific train museum in Los Angeles, but I always enjoy these traveling model train shows.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
