Press Release

For Immediate Release 11/30/21

Greenville, South Carolina

The Return Of MWOT™

After a hiatus of over 7 years Miniature World of Trains™ is planning on a return.

From July 2012 until July 2015 the non profit BETA Test version of the Miniature World of Trains™ operated in downtown Greenville, SC. The main computerized MWOT™ display was created by a team of 20 volunteers over the course of just 4 months. This location was used to test quick building methods and to see if it would draw visitors. And it did!

Some 80,000 people visited from around the world over the course of the two years of operation without advertising before the lease ended and construction in the area and lack of packing forced the closure of the venue.

Since July 2015 we have be searching for a viable location and secure funding for a new for profit version of the Miniature World of Trains™..

As of this press release the new for profit Miniature World of Trains™ is currently reviewing three different, excellent locations for the new version of the MWOT™ project. The first two are the Wade Location at 13,000sf and the Wood Location at 15,000sf and the current favorite and preferred Gold Location at 38,000sf.

Each location has plenty of parking and are easily accessible.

After the success of the BETA test version in downtown Greenville, SC we have been on a mission to find a more viable location outside of the City of Greenville's downtown. Back in 2019 we found two locations. One was a purchase location but we lost the bidding war for that 60,000sf venue and the other was a lease location of 14,000sf but the owner wound up selling that location, then Covid hit and the venue search was put on hold!

This past October the current investors in the new for profit began the search for a new viable long term location and have found the three mentioned above!

We should begin construction during the first quarter of 2022 with the new Christmas Model Train Display™ which is set to open mid November 2022. Once this display is complete Phase I of the new Miniature World of Trains™ display will start construction mid summer.

There is plenty of information about the new for profit on our secure website:

Why are we sending this press release?


Simply stated we need your assistance to get the word out to build

"Our World In Miniature"™

Currently we are in need of investors, donors and people to work and volunteer to help build this one of a kind group of displays here in the USA.

First, we are seeking to complete the minimum funding of $800,000 in cash so that we can begin to build the displays and secure the venue. People or businesses can invest money into the for profit or they can donate money if they choose.

Based on our projected profit and loss spread sheets using the attendance of the BETA test as a base for visitors attendance and the predicated monthly operating costs, the new for profit should be a success!

There is plenty of information on how to
INVESTMENT - DONATIONS - VOLUNTEER on the website!


IF PEOPLE CAN'T INVEST?!?!?


We are in need of volunteers from around the Greenville, SC area and around the world to help build the displays. See the list of available positions and jobs on our website.


We are also in need of a qualified DCC software programmer for the computer program that will run the main display. As of this email we have not fully decided on whether we will use JMRI or Railroad and Co. software to run the display. Please contact us if you would like to help with this.


Also we need model builders, tree and rock formation creators as well as carpenters and electricians.

Model builders can work from home anywhere in the USA. We will send you a model kit and then you send it back to MWOT™. That is how most of the buildings that created the BETA display where built!


We encourage individuals and clubs to help create the 100's of structures needed to create the new displays


So people can join the team today!

We look forward to your help in getting the word out!
