Ellicott City, MD train show again tries to present an other-worldly concept with Lego

I did make a visit to the Holiday Train Show at the "B&O" Railroad Museum at the station in Ellicott City. MD (SW of Baltimore) today.  The link is here.

There were four extra exhibits upstairs.  Two were larger (G scale) layouts with toy trains and little scenery.

There was an extra N-scale layout based on nearby scenery, similar to the permanent exhibit in the building next to the caboose (which simulates the coutryside between Baltimore and Harpers Ferry).

But the prize goes to the Lego exhibit, a partitioned city on three altitude levels, and various concentric track flows within (and that underground tunnel concept, too).  It rather reminded me of the Second Dominion in Clive Barker's "Imajica".

The Lego was probably smaller than the York exhibit (Monday's posting) but in some ways even more original.
