It will illustrate the worldwide train adventure from its beginning until nowadays, all presented with an extensive historical documentation and interactive tools, that will help and stimulate children to enter the railway adventure . Thousands of artifacts allow to get a special glimpse of the railroad world.
The origin of the model collection goes back to 1958. In the beginning, the collection mostly included Italian train models, later German, French and American models were added. Today after ten years of investigation, ongoing studies and a growing collection we have created a unique project.
Contribute to the vitality of communities by presenting new contents, new narratives, configure new relations and perceptions of other cultures which equip people to live in a globalized, multicultural society.
To preserve and transmit values through the collection, the history and the fabulous experience of the railroad world.
To bring history, adventure, learning and fun into people´s lives, to relate the artifacts to something people values today.
To collect and buy a large number of scale model trains and all sorts of objects representing the history of railways around the world…..
Claudio Boccherini contacted us about this museum, that he is hoping to put together in Orlando,Florida. Some of the artefacts are historical gems, to say the least!
In his own words:
“The project has the most important and unique collection of train models in the world but a lot of unique areifacts as the personal service of the dining car of Mareschal Foch. Uniforms of world wide railways from 1900 to today; documents of Kaiser Wilhelm II, the personal service of dining car used by Napoleon III, the menu of the American trip of Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev in a Southern Pacific dining car.”
“I am trying to find private companies or private people that are interested in investing in the project for the building and the interiors to receive the collection.”
Claudio will be pleased to hear from any willing investors and supporters to make this a reality. Contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
