Best model train G-scale garden layout on private property, that I have ever seen! Elaine Silets’ train layouts are world famous.

She got her start selling her outdoor layouts in the famous Neman-Marcus Christmas Wish Book, then went on to build custom layouts in all scales. Her son H. L. takes us through one of the largest and best G-scale layouts in the world as well as her incredible Chicago-themed Lionel O-scale model train museum.
