Astronomical Calendar: 2013 November
This photograph shows a very busy day at the Miniature Railroad and Village exhibit at Pittsburgh's original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science, during the 1966-1967 exhibition season. One of Buhl's most popular exhibits, it was displayed each year from 1954 to 1991. Known as a very popular Pittsburgh attraction during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, the four months of the year known to the Buhl staff as "Railroad Season" actually began each year on the first Friday of November. Today, the Miniature Railroad and Village is displayed at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Science Center and will open to the public on the day after Thanksgiving.
