M.W. is a great "ambassador" for the hobby of model railroading, Northlandz is just an overgrown, under-scenicked aberration. Drive a little farther west into Pennsylvania and visit Roadside America. While not on the same scale as M.W. it's definitely a step above Northlandz.We used to stop at Roadside America on the way home from summer camp when I was in grade school in the '60s. It always facinated me. We stopped there with my kids when they were little about 15 years ago. It was still facinating, but it did look like it needed some maintenace and refurbishment. Haven't see it since then.
