If money was no object, (within in reason, none of us are billionaires) what would be your dream project? I would like to work on a g scale version of Nature's Wonderland. There would be a backyard with plenty of room to put in almost everything the original ride had. Since I don't have that kind of money I would be satisfied just helping somebody build a g scale replica of the ride.

If I "was" a billionaire I would try to recreate the ride in full scale and try to make it as realistic as possible with today's technology.

A NWRR as it should be today.....as already stated.....using todays tech it could be super cool. I always watched any report on Jackson's Neverland because they owned our Carowinds #2 and I thought your own theme park was a neat idea.

yes, Micheal purchased #2, did he just buy it for his park or did like trains?

My understanding is he bought it to replace a very small Crown 4-2-2 or something like that. But #2 would not make it around the loop on first try as one curve was way too sharp. I don't think it was ever really used in service at Neverland.

I've never heard or read any reports of Michael Jackson being into trains. It's kind of a shame really, considering that he owned a steam locomotive.

...kind of like turnkey hot rodders.

is the locomotive still at the Neverland Ranch? or was is sold?
