Miniature World of Trains
™  Update

I know I promised an update on the project this week, but I am awaiting some information from the general contractor this coming week before I can announce the new location officially.

This week some of the current investor team meet with our bank to discuss options for funding the project and the conversation went very well! Initially Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg was funded via a $12M USD loan from a bank. Now MWOT
will be doing the same! I will have more information on that as well!

This is a really great location that will allow the Miniature World of Trainsto become the premier model railroad display in the USA!

Stay 'tuned'!
