As the sign reads, "Ultimate Trains"! Jun 20, 2010
By now everyone should know that I like trains, and it doesn’t really matter whether they are the real thing, new or old, or scaled down versions that run inside or outside and as small as Z gauge. Well, Ultimate Trains is a fairly unique place in that it sells nearly all scales, from the very small to the large model railroads, and from your child’s first snap-together to the nicest most detailed (and probably highest priced) version you can buy. But besides that it has a wonderful outdoor garden layout with lots of G scale trains in motion around and in and out through a very nice layout. I think they said the there are eleven trains going all the time. There is even a ride-on train that takes kids from the front door out and around the property. And there are two layouts especially for the kids where they have tacked down the rails and the kids can run the small wooden trains however they wish. There is a small entry fee to the outdoor layout, but well worth the price. Hard to believe they can do this in Canada, with the cold winters.
