Northlandz, Part 1
Northlandz is considered the “world’s largest model railroad” by some, although others have claimed that title for a place in Germany.
It is certainly one of the largest in the world. Northlandz started with the owner building trains and villages for his own amusement after a hard day’s work.
Eventually it was housed in an enormous building (16 acres!) on Route 202 in historic Flemington, New Jersey. The settings are impressive, with tiny villages and large cities, and huge mountains with long bridges. The little trains run up and down and around these structures. It’s a great place to visit for train enthusiasts, small children, and just about anyone.
There is also the doll museum and a pipe organ (which the owner plays). It’s a little expensive to visit, but it is the creation of one man’s passion and vision, and is a special place. The owner even is in charge of the little shop on the site. He was there when we went!
I’ll have more photos from Northlandz next week, including some wonderful dolls!
You can read more about Northlandz here, including about the remarkable owner under the “history” tab, and also cool videos about the place.

P.S. I love comments and will answer back, but some WordPress blogs simply refuse to post my comments for some reason, even when I try with Twitter. I don't know why. I also cannot comment on blogs that only accept Google+ comments.
Thanks for visiting New Jersey Memories!
