McCormick Train Park in Scottsdale, AZ

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

I find trains interesting, but never pursued them with any passion. However, even I could appreciate our visit a couple days ago to the McCormick Train Park in Scottsdale, AZ. The park has large trains, train rides, and model trains. I even managed to find a couple tiny jeeps within the train model theme landscapes. If you are ever near this park, stop in and take a look. Cool place for kids of all sizes.  The one thing they were missing were hy-rail jeeps. Below are some pics:

This cool sculpture is located at the entrance of the model train exhibit. I could see doing something similar with jeeps.
