Initially, it was decided that although the trains would operate only in the evenings as part of WildLights, basic layout of track would remain in place; only the trains and buildings would be stored. However, because of the popularity of the display, the trains started running full time during the regular park hours beginning January 1, 2001. The trains are referred to as “G” scale, which is approximately ½ inch to the foot or 1:22.5 inches, about twice the size of Lionel trains. Although not the largest model scale train, it is the most popular “large scale” train. The locomotives, rolling stock, track, switches and most of the equipment are made by LGB. In fact, the letters “LGB” stand for Lehmann Gross Bahn or Lehmann’s Big Train. Video Rating: / 5 Palm Desert, CA Video Rating: / 5

    I remember this place from when I went to visit, it was my favorite part of the trip (it was a few years ago)

    the camera work was kind of strange, and at many times had to follow.

    Very nice landscape with huge bridges
    unfortunately a bit a nervous cameraman: permanent zoom in, zoom out, turn etc. Danger of getting a small headache!
