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

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

We intend to change that by creating a large venue with scale model train
 attractions here in Greenville, SC that will revel those locations as
well as many others around the world ! 

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

There is a growing global trend of these vast animated miniature world attractions, and we are excited to be first-to-market at this very sophisticated level in the USA.

It is our intent to bring a large scale model railroad attraction that combines a fun and whimsical atmosphere, technically advanced miniature world in a state of the art building in Greenville, South Carolina that is better and more advanced then Hamburg or any other model railroad display!

The Miniature World of Trains™ will be located in a leased facility with a minimum of 10,000 and up to 40,000 square feet, The site has been determined and we are moving forward as fast as we can to a Spring 2023 opening of phase I of the Miniature World of Trains™ and soon after the opening Christmas Model Train Display™ in the last quarter of 2022.

There is a miniature train display built in Canada called Little Canada opened in 2021 and is in downtown Toronto in a very expansive to lease location.


There are numerous large scale model train displays in Europe besides Miniatur Wunderland
™. 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!

MWOT™
WILL BE THE
ULTIMATE
FAMILY FUN
DESTINATION!

The BETA version of the Miniature World Of Trains™ located in downtown Greenville, SC was a non profit and the new version will be an LLC with a funding goal of $800,000 in cash for Phase I.

The BETA version no longer exists. It was open from 2013 to 2015 attracting close to 80,000 visitors during its scheduled temporary run. The BETA test was exactly that. A test that was a success despite the parking issues. 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 and the building construction in the West End area. Also, there was no where else to move to at that time.

It has taken since 2015 to find a location to lease at least 30,000sf and start PHASE I. This permanent build out location will be expandable for future additions and attractions in same permanent location. A location has been found and will be announced soon! Railroad fans and model railroaders alike will love this location!

In the meantime, we will need continue to raise the capital investment to start the planning for the Miniature World of Trains
™
