Well, I finally got to see Mr. Jaap de Vries' model train museum. He was open to the public on flag day and I had a look around. I went back again, by appointment to take video. There are too many things to capture in just a few minutes, but I put together some of the highlights, which are at the usual place:
While the trains are interesting, the Greyhound Bus Ticket which was bought in 1963 and good for 99 days and cost $99 for as much travel as he could do, was amazing. He certainly got his money's worth. And, of course, the original lens from the California Lighthouse, which according to Mr. de Vries, was made by Fresnel in Paris, France. Augustin Fresnel invented this type of lens which enables the light beam to be focused, and it is used in all types of applications these days including motion picture production. I use a few of this type in my video blog studio in the States.
Amazing what you can find on this tiny island.
