How about some backyard inspiration? Conductor Bud began construction of his backyard railroad in 2000 in a garden already brimming with flowers, trees and water features. A G-Scale train goes through the backyard town, with a granite retaining wall serving as the town’s base, while a waterfall trickles nearby. Handmade trestles and bridges add to the charm. Can you find the gorilla that escaped from the carnival? While you are at the Garden, find the geyser and Conductor Bud's version of Mount Rushmore! Check out "Mechanical Mountain" with the balancing skateboarder and marble coaster.
FREE! Visitors are welcome during the public open houses on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 1 - 4 pm (June through September). Note: Trains will not be running if it is raining.
