What do Disney Theme Parks and the Miniatur Wunderland(TM) 
in Hamburg Germany have in common?

They do not have a presence in Greenville or the Upstate of South Carolina. 

We intend to can change that! 

You all know Walt Disney World(TM) and Disneyland(TM) and some of you know the Miniatur Wunderland(TM) model train display. 
Both of these 'family attractions' see millions and millions of visitors of all ages each year attend the venues. 

Currently in any state or city in the USA nothing like what we intend to build in exist. 

It is our intent to bring a fun, whimsical, technically advanced miniature world to 
Greenville, South Carolina that is better and more advanced then Hamburg! 

There is a miniature train display being built in Canada that was scheduled to open in 2017 
but that has not occurred as of the last update for this page. There are numerous large scale model train displays in 
Europe besides Miniatur Wunderland(TM). Each drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. 
Hamburg draws over 1.2 million visitors each year and is the number one tourist attraction in Germany! 

The BETA version of the Miniature World Of Trains(TM) located in downtown Greenville, SC was a non profit and the new
 will be the same unless we reach the funding goal of $3,000,000 for Phase I. The BETA version no longer exist. It was open from 2013 to 2015 attracting close to 80,000 visitors during its run. The BETA test was exactly that. It has lead to this new version currently being developed. 
The non profit downtown closed for three reasons. The lease ran out in January 2015, lack of parking 
for visitors and volunteers as well as we could not get enough volunteers to
help with day to day operations. Also, there was no where else to move to at that time.

It has taken since 2015 to find a location to build our own 20,000sf building for PHASE I that will expandable for future additions
 and attractions in same permanent location. This location has been found and 
will be announced soon! Railroad fans and model railroaders alike will love this location!

 More info to come!
