    John, Northlanz is in Flemington. Perhaps you will reconsider your decision not to visit, tonight and tomorrow night would be good for me, for an hour visit. If interested, e mail me. Enjoy your visit.

    We went there a few years ago.
    It's a display layout, no operation, trains running in paths.
    I think the walk is about a mile.
    Every scenic joke you can imagine.
    Scenery generally well done, but some areas where you can see the 2x4s under the shell.

    Northlandz visit

    I've been to it twice in the last several years. The layout looks a little beat where the public can get there hands on it. The are plastic shields that are a foot high or so, but it is still possible to touch the model itself. A few displays are protected by glass. On first visit, it's very impressive, mostly HO scale but there's a few smaller setups of larger scale models. It's a model only a madman or a musuem would build. Massive doesn't begin to describe it. Next time I go I think I'll bring a godzilla suit with me and attack.

    The most impressive thing I saw there was a effect created by a normal mirror and two way mirror. You look down thru two way mirror, theres a few lights on the sides of the walls and another mirror opposite you, so it looks like its a bottomless pit. I wanted to create the same effect on the clieling of my living room, but I couldn't find a price for 2 way glass on the internet. :rolleyes: :D :D
