In the activities page should I write about Model Train Show also? What about “Photographs are ideas”. Can you throw some light on what topics I have to cover?
I am doing google search to collect the points for Lehigh Valley History.

Model Train Show

Lehigh Valley Model Railroad Museum is one of Bethlehem’s best kept secrets! The level and quality of detail is simply amazing. The stunning team effort and incredible detail that has gone into these arrangements is unbelievable! The staff are very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and talented.

Excellent all the way around. Very prototypical with brilliant scenery.
