Roads and Rails Museum in Frederick MD creates a Rama world

I visited the little “Road and Rails” Museum in Frederick, MD today, on East Street (MD 85 which you get on from I-270 4 miles east of the main US 15 turnoff for Gettysburg, PA).  There is a parking lot behind the building, hard to see.

The main layout is an 850-square-foot space (the size of a one-bedroom apartment) with an interior.  On the south end there is a huge volcano peak. There is farmland, suburbs (one little mountain), a big city, then a northern mountain section with a range that runs south-north with a couple more rails on top.  On the east side there is an “old west” canyon;  on the west side there are circuses and othr roadside attractions. There is one small town on the NW corner.

Imagine if you went to live in this community as a Lilliputian for your afterlife.

The layout reminds me of Choo-Choo Barn in Strasburg, OA and Roadside America, on I-78 west of Reading PA.
