FROM TRIP ADVISOR:
5 Star Rating
"Great Exhibit"
It was a very interesting layout of the Greenville/Spartanburg areas and the mountains in the middle. The many different city designs they had, along with the industrial and farmlands dotted with a variety of animals was quite impressive. Also the knowledge and the readiness of the volunteers working the display, to answer questions from both young and old alike, was excellent. It is an excellent place to take kids to enjoy. The HO scale trains(40 of them I believe) were something of beauty. Well worth the $5.00 admission fee, of which i believe some goes to local charities. Check it out if in the Greenville area. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

THE BIG MOVE!
Fundraising Event


The Miniature World of Trains BETA has been open almost a year now with the display's
 one year anniversary celebration on March 29th. The Christmas Model Train Display has
completed its fourth year and has become a Greenville Tradition.

The Miniature World of Trains (MWOT) venue is drawing visitors not only from the local area,
but visitors that are dedicated to coming to MWOT. They arrive from Atlanta, Charlotte,
Asheville and Columbia. There have been visitors from around the world including but not limited to
 Zimbabwe, South Africa, India, Pakistan, China, Japan, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Germany,
Austria, France, Belgium, Iceland and the United Kingdom.

The MWOT has been described by visitor as "Awesome, Fantastic, Wonderful, Amazing, Beautiful,
Incredible, Impressive and Magnificent". The Fourth Annual Christmas Model Train Display has
been described as the "One of the finest holiday displays in the country" by Classic Toy
Trains Magazine November 2014 and "The Pick Of The Season" by WYFF 4 (NBC) November 2014.

While the MWOT project came into existence back in 2009, we where not able to find a
location or enough funding to open until 2013. A lease that ends at the end of this month
 was negotiated given us the opportunity to close if no one came to see what the
 volunteer team from around the has created. Well, without advertising, using free
 marketing tools and word of mouth has taken over and visitors from around the
world have come to MWOT BETA. So, we where successful! MWOT now plans for the future.

MWOT BETA was created to see if visitors would come to the museum, find it interesting.
The all volunteer team from around the world also needed to create and work with some
new technology, software and hardware and materials to build the future larger display.

National sponsors Lowes, Hubbell Lighting, Wabtec, Faiverly and Galaxy Circuits and
 model railroad sponsors Walthers, Bachmann, Digitrax, Soundtraxx/Blackstone, Classic
 Model Railroads and Woodland Scenics/ DPM to name a few, have help
 create the Miniature World of Trains BETA display.

With the help of local television (WYFF/NBC, WSPA/CBS, FOX Carolina/ FOX, WLOS/ ABC)
 PBS (SC-ETV) and being featured in the South Carolina Tourism Video, plus live segments
on WYFF Morning News, Fox Carolina Morning News and Your Carolina, video segments
 on PBS, Scene On 7, FOX Carolina News and WSPA News 7, print media via article in
Classic Toy Trains Magazine, Model Retailer, Greenville Journal, Seneca Journal and Greenville
News, radio on the South Carolina Radio Network, MWOT has gotten the word out! And will continue to do so!

Our advertising push started on November 14th and just recently ended and was successful.
More marketing and advertising coming in February!

What does this all mean? The Miniature World of Trains has a future. But, unfortunately,
 the current location does not allow MWOT to expand for that future. The Camperdown
 location does not have dedicated parking and the city has closed a parking garage
 since September 2014 that was not expected.

We knew that we would outgrow the current MWOT location if successful. We have been successful.
So, MWOT needs to move into a new venue, with parking!

We are currently working on several location options to create the new Miniature World of Trains.
 These locations will allow MWOT to continue to add new features and sections over the
 next 10 years or more, keeping the MWOT project fresh. The new location will allow us to
 expand the educational aspect of the MWOT project and will have parking thus allowing
more visitors from around the world to find us and find a place to park without many hassle's.
This search will be completed in the next 30 days.

We want to start construction at the new venue by May 1st with an opening of the new MWOT March 26th, 2015.

BUDGET OVERVIEW

To get this done we need to receive a minimum of $500,000 is cash donations to
create the new, larger and expandable Miniature World of Trains.

So, today we launch our "The Big Move" fundraiser event and we are requesting your
support to help us move forward! The fundraiser ends April 30th. 2015.
