It all began around 35 years ago when Mr. Bruce William first home was being built in 1972. During the construction work, there were many things that were left there by builders overnight. Mr. Bruce started erecting scenes in his basement with mud, sand, and other types of materials. Workers returning the next morning would remove these miniature structures to continue their work, however, they became great admirers of his talent. With appreciation, they encouraged Mr. Bruce to continue his work and make a separate space for it. This resulted in a fourth addition to the basement of his Flemington area home. Impressed by the work, his friends persuaded him to host an annual train show for a local charity. This was a great success that soon led to open exhibits for the general public at the weekends. This later resulted in the world`s largest railroad miniature wonderland.
