Re: scale figurines

My kids got a 'Woody' doll (Toy Story) and a 'Jessie' doll (Toy Story II) for Christmas. They were playing with them and I got to thinking about this thread.

No coal mines around Drumheller anymore, that I know of. The old Atlas Coal Mine in Drumheller is open for tours in the Summer months. I've never been, but if anyone is ever up that way, I have been told ts a neat tour.
