MESSAGES

2022

A Message From The Founder and President

Over the last couple of years I have not been able to attend the local NMRA meeting and the Easley Train Show to keep you all informed about MWOT™ due to previous business and family commitments.

The Miniature World of Trains™ continues to move forward but has slowed down
due to the world wide situations that MWOT™ has no control over.

With the war in Ukraine raging on as of this update with no end in site, the continued rise a prices for everything across the board and the lingering effects of Covid still effecting some areas of the country and the world, CEO Kelly Orr and I have decided to push back the opening date for the first display to 2023.

This means we will not start hard display construction until the end of the third quarter of 2022 as long as the world mellows out as of this update

However, this does not mean that we can't start on small projects like building some of the hundreds of structures needed for the displays.

Since this is the start of
the Miniature World of Trains™ for profit version  still need to complete the PHASE I funding of $800K to $1.5M+ for phase I of the HO Display and the Christmas Model Train Display™. Already over $130,000 has been received for work already completed for the project! But more is still needed.

We will start building models structures and the like for the main
Miniature World of Trains™
HO Display in July 2022 for the main city scene including the main station and platforms, the huge ore dock and many skyscrapers and small buildings and during the summer the building of the thousands of trees needed for the display.

Here is how you can help us!

A Message From The Founder and President

The world is all around us. We are surrounded by it everyday.

The colors of the world live in the diversity of its life within the seas, rivers, lakes, mountains and man made structures . The cities with their skyscrapers, homes and industries. Within the cities are the bright lights of the city centers and stadiums filled with the energy of its people!. It is the feeling of a great world we live in. Our world is immense and diverse. The USA is a vast country filled with natural and man made wonders in which not everyone can visit and enjoy during their lifetime.

In early 2010 I had the vision of creating a miniature version of our world. I wanted everyone to be able to see America in its glory in a morning, afternoon or evening visit. "See America in a day"
TM! I wanted everyone to be able to visit. Bring the world to everyone from every walk of life.

The vision was to build a place where people could experience "Our World In Miniature"
™ from representation of the eastern USA to the western USA using state of models and animation. These incredible destinations will be created by our team of modeling masters from around the USA and the world. They will be building both recognizable and new representations of the world we live in!

This is the Miniature World of Trains
™
!

The Miniature World of Trains™ will be a place unlike anything in the United States.

To start in 2022 / 2023 we are creating the USA's east coast, starting with a representation of the southeastern USA and moving north to a representation of central Pennsylvania then to the western mountains and a very large cityscape. The main display in an 8,000sf room will take a lot of work to create the realistic looking world in miniature and will be done on a scale never before scene in America. It will feature our geography and diversity.

Our talented team of artists, engineers, designers and modelers are combining the craft of model railroading & model building with 21st technology. Our city scenes will feature detailed model trains and moving vehicles, structures with hundreds of thousands of LED lighting affects and will include up to 10 foot tall sky scrapers in the big city scene in Phase VI. Every miniature building, train, vehicle, tree, person and animation will bring you the world as we know it as you have never seen it before. In miniature.

Our goal is to build the next big attraction in the USA™.
Something both magical and educational.

It will be successful as others that have inspired me have.

For example the proof of concept is the number one tourist attraction is the Miniatur-Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany with 1.2 million visitors per year! There are many others around Europe that have hundreds of thousands of visitors each year but there is nothing even approaching the quality of Hamburg. It is massive in its scope.

The Miniature World of Trains
™ will be funded by individuals as members of the newly formed LLC.

We will tell the story about this great place to thousands and thousands if not millions of people each year.

Now let us share this experience with the world and capture the wonder that is our world.
