    2011 Spring Open house

    I love to see the young faces light up watching train running.

    When this young guy walked in I ask if he wanted to run a train. I think he was the first "No thanks" I ever got when asking. But after walking around with Grandpa and Dad a little while, he took the controls and ran a train like a expert.

    Open House Spring 2012
    Sorry for the lack of photos. We are short N-scale train enginers so I was busy running trains. We had a good turn out and this Spring we gave away a G-scale Christmas train for a door prize.
