Because things in miniature are always cool: The Pasadena Model Railroad Club

>>PLAY

The Pasadena Model Railroad Club puts the model town in “Beetlejuice” to shame, shame, shame.

First of all, it’s one of the largest operating model railroads in the whole world and covers almost 5,000 square feet. Second, those itty-bitty steel rails — more than 30,000 feet of them — were all hand-laid.

Get a look at the details on these babies, below, and scope it out in person at one of the club’s open houses or the twice-monthly operational meetings.

As an aside, is it wrong to think the lilliputian peeps in the second-to-last photo are skinny-dipping?
