Recently, our "road trip budget" has fallen short. Since the cost of living went up, and the salary didn't we had to cut out some of the more expensive trips (expensive for us, basically if it’s more then $50 for all four of us, we’re not going) but we still manage to find places.  The problem we are facing is when it’s a rainy day.

This week we went to see the world’s largest model railroad in Northlandz in Flemington, NJ.  A 52,000 square foot building with the most amazing, delicate and skillfully built model railroad scenery we had ever seen.  The detail on those models is incredible, with trains traveling all around, out of tunnels, over bridges and around towns.  There are thousands of buildings, miles of track, many bridges and huge canyons.

It took the four of us about 1.5 hours to go through the collection (and we rushed towards the end due to a “potty” emergency), including the doll collection and stopping for a while at the 94 room dollhouse.  Afterwards we went to ride a “real” train, which was the highlight of our son’s day.

Afterwards we had a pizza at Alfonsos 202 which gave us 10% when showing them our Northlandz receipt.

The building is handicapped accessible and you are allowed to bring in food and drink with you while you walk through the amazing scenery.
