Best model train garden layout on private property, that I have ever seen! Elaine Silets’ train layouts are world famous. Known as the “Train Lady”, Elaine has been in the model train business almost all here life. She got her start selling her outdoor layouts in the famous Neman-Marcus Christmas Wish Book, then went on to build custom layouts in all scales. Her son H. L. takes us through one of the largest and best G-scale layouts in the world as well as her incredible Chicago-themed Lionel O-scale model train museum.
