The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis recently opened two new exhibits:.*“Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure” is a huge, holiday-themed model railroad layout.

Eight G-scale/gauge trains will roll over 1,200 feet of track passing by detailed replicas of national treasures, such as Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, and features and/or lodges of Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Yellowstone national parks.

The trains also pass by downtown Indy landmarks, such as the Eiteljorg Museum, Monument Circle, Union Station and Lucas Oil Stadium, the news release said. At the stadium model, visitors will hear Indianapolis Colts’ announcer Bob Lamey broadcasting a game.

Every structure and landscape feature in the layout is made from natural materials by Paul Busse and his company, Applied Imagination of Alexandria, Ky.
