Frank Gehry - Museum / Model Train

Hi everyone,

Frank Gehry, the world-famous architect, has announced plans for a museum featuring famous buildings (like the Empire State Building) with model trains running around these buildings. The museum will be in North Adams, Mass.

It sounds interesting but still has a long way to go to fruition.

I didn't see it explicitly said, but if the Empire State Building is going to be 35 ft tall, it must be O scale, if my calculations are right. Should be very impressive when (if) it gets completed.

If it gets completed, which is probably in doubt right now, I'd go see it as my daughter lives in Boston, kill two birds with one stone.

I agree with John -- if it ever gets built, which is far from certain -- it's right in my back yard, easy for me to hop up and have a look.

It would be cool, it's just that so many of these pie in the sky projects never get off the ground. I can't get excited about some of this stuff as I suspect I won't live long enough to see it.
