Now THAT's A Train Set

There's a model railroading club in our town, they're set up on the main floor of one of the old village nuildings.  They had an open house recently, on the same day my son's scout troop was marching in the town's "homecoming" parade....    It was a fun place to pop in after walking; cool off look at the trains....

It's a pretty big setup and quite details.  They've even built some scenes that echo local landmarks. 

The nice folks even let the kids run some of the trains.  My son's favorite was one with a tiny camera mounted on the engine, which fed it's signal to a TV screen.  The kids could watch the view from the engine in real time.  Pretty cool!
