More Train World Photos
Posted by Avital Pinnick on October 1, 2013
The amusement park was wonderful. Over a dozen rides actually lit up, spun around. This photo was shot with a relatively long exposure so that the ferris wheel lights are blurred (I say “relatively long” because I hadn’t brought a tripod; all the shots were hand-held). I managed to shoot a video of a small “mousetrap” roller coaster. I took a lot of photos of this part of the Jerusalem Train World but haven’t posted them all.
Scenes from a castle on top of a mountain. In the first photo, people in 19th century costumes wander around tables while a band plays in the background.
In front of the castle, I focused on the horses and carriage and used a small aperture so that the background would be out of focus.
Family picnic by the side of the road:
This was really cool. Two mountains with spiral tracks and a bridge joining them enabled trains to run over the emergency exit. There were so many people watching that I couldn’t get a good photo of the train inside the mountain, but in this photo the train is on the bridge.

A hands-on model train was set up for children. A guide explains how electric trains work.
