The local area railway society had an open house today.

Train1Holy miles of fun Batman.

They have a huge (like 25′ wide by 75′ long) room where they’ve set up 4 different areas of tracks.  Each area has a minimum of 4 different tracks.  And tons of trains running those tracks.

Train2(Can you spot the old time Mickey D’s?)

While we went expecting to entertain the Boy for an hour or so, I think we all had a blast.  Okay, not the Girl…she slept through it.


It was great fun to see all the little worlds these guys have created.  (See the kids playing ball?)  They even have a replica of the Big City before it was very big.

Maybe we just found a use for our unfinished basement…
