Model Railway Exhib-Conservatory of Flowers-Mini Landmarks made of Recycled Materials Answered

There is going to be a Model Railway Exhibition at the Conservatory of Flower in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. They turned one of the wings into the largest fantasy Model Railroad layout. Landmarks of San Francisco have been built out of Recycled/Repurposed Materials and placed around the layout. It looks really cool.

The Conservatory of Flowers is Recycled Acetate File Folder Tabs, Corrugated Plastic and Chess Pieces for Finials. The Chinatown Gate is out of Mah Jongg Tiles and Dice, Portals of the Past is from Cassette Tapes, the TransAmerica Pyramid had 6000 Computer keys, and Coit Tower has Rulers and Yardsticks. There are more buildings also.
