It's hard not to feel enormous in these Granville Island museums. Step into the model-boat collection, and you dwarf a wee whale, shrunken sailors and Lilliputian logs. Walk through the sport-fishing displays, and you loom over little bitty lures. Follow the wail of the whistles to the model trains, and suddenly you're taller than 6,000 teeny trees. Once you get past the Amazon attitude, though, it's hard not to develop a colossal admiration for these miniature marvels - and for the full-size folks who build them. If you add our link to your site, please notify me and I will add your link to our site within one business day.

The Switchback was the second railroad in the US, completed in 1827. The first was the Granite Railway of Massachusetts, built to haul granite from quarries near Quincy three miles to the construction site for the Bunker Hill monument. Service was inaugurated on October 7, 1826. When operation began, in May 1827, on the railroad that came to be known as the Switch Back, there were only two other railroads in the United States -- an abandoned short wooden track at Leiper's stone quarry near Philadelphia and the three-mile track at Quincy. Both the Quincy and the Mauch Chunk were gravity-powered in one direction and beast-powered in the other.
