A touch of fantasy world in the middle of lush gardens, our garden railroad brings the whimsical charm of a miniature railroad to Seeds of Wonder, placing smiles on many faces, young and old. Come take a tour of our miniature landscape.
All Aboard! The train wanders through the country side, passing under the gondola which carries our miniature visitors to the height of “SOW Mountain” and onto the “Quail Lookout Tower.” From the height of the tower you can see a small town in the distance. The town is serviced by a trolley that provides means of transportation to the many residents. Push the big yellow button and you are the Engineer!
The newest addition to the Seeds of Wonder Rail Road. Thomas the Tank Engine and friends. Thanks to Bud Reece of Bachmann.
