One of the primary contributors to the spectacular growth of the US is the railroad system. For more than 100 years this country has been shaped by its extensive railroad network. And this is why it is entirely fitting for the Chicago Botanic Garden to have a section which is dedicated to the railroads in the US. Naturally, no Railroad Garden will ever be complete without cast aluminium garden furniture because this kind of furniture is probably one of the closest things to the furniture which was seen on railway stations throughout the last century. In this amazing garden, you will, therefore, see entire sets of model trains passing through tunnels and across bridges and also passing well-known American landmarks such as the White House and many other well-known tourist destinations. Most of these miniature models have been hand crafted by the well-known designer Paul Busse. This garden has become a major inspiration to property owners all across the US, many of whom have their own railway gardens.
