Last week I told you about Northlandz, the model railroad located in Flemington, New Jersey. I showed you some trains and the spectacular scenery and settings that were created by the owner.

This week I will show you some other interesting parts of Northlandz.

Here is a Christmas village:

There is a room where there is a control panel to run the trains on schedule.

And now . . .  the DOLLS!

Northlandz contains a doll museum called La Peep Doll House, and very creative it is!

  1. Wonderful miniatures. I would love to visit sometime.

  2. That's a huge control panel for the trains.

  3. I love how cool that doll house is! POSH

  4. The doll house reminds me of the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago.

  5. You woke up the little girl in me with those photos =)

  7. That's quite a place. Didn't exist when I lived in NJ. I have no idea who the second blonde is in that one picture. Recognized everyone else. What a neat set up they have with the trains and dolls. I would love to visit there someday. When I was growing up we went often to Flemington to the Stangl dish factory. My mother and grandmother would buy seconds. I still have some of my grandmother's Stangl dishes on shelves in my kitchen and dining room. When we got married our first set of dishes came from Stangl. There was also a doll factory, but as I recall it was more like a doll store. We would go and look, but never bought. The dolls were collectibles. I think they had china heads, but I'm not sure. I was pretty young. My sister might remember better than me. I know the Stangl factory closed many years ago. I googled Stangl and came up with this site: I'm off to check it out.

    1. Never heard of Stangl before, but after googling Stangl it looks very pretty!
