Great way to amuse children for an afternoon

Whilst visiting our daughter and her family last year we took our two grand sons, aged 4 and 9 to the Jarditrain, railway model village in St Didier, approximately a half hour drive from Avignon. It is situated on the outskirts of the village and was easy to find. This model village took several years to build and we were able to read the history of how it all happened, including both the personal and technical details. There are over 650 metres of track with 2 km of electric cable to run the trains. Several trains run at the same time, crossing over one another and across bridges. There are several model villages with roads, mountains, lakes, railway stations and over 500 figurines. There is a lot to look at and you can move around the outside to different areas to get different views. You can also go inside and look through glass to the room where all the trains come into and the next train moves out. The kids found this very interesting and spent as much time watching that as looking at the model village and trains. Inside there are also four large tables with wooden trains and tracks set up that the kids can play with. Our grandsons loved this and spent a lot of time playing with the trains while we were able to just sit and relax, perfect! We had taken snacks with us but also bought ice cream from the refreshment bar inside. It was a great way to spend a few hours and had the kids completely absorbed.
