Pittsburgh Pa Garden Railroad

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has an article today about the garden railroad at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens Summer Flower Show. The show runs from May 10 until October 5. The trains are push button operable by the visitors and are featured in nine of the rooms in the greenhouse.

Arthur Lagorio, 3, of Bethel Park, pushes a button to make a circus train go through the flowers in the Serpentine Room at Phipps Conservatory Thursday, May 8, 2014. The Summer Show begins May 10th.

That's cool. I'd go for the trains, the wife for the flowers...together we'd have a good time!

Even past October, the main train display will be up until around March of next year.

People should definitely visit. I spent a lot of time volunteering to construct the main display.
