Going to the Syracuse Train Fair this weekend? Be sure to stop by the T-Trak layout and say “hi.” Members of three N scale clubs will once again be operating one of the largest T-Trak modular layouts you’ll find anywhere. I might even run my Broadway Limited!
We toured the Central Library’s new Bausch & Lomb building on its opening day, back in 1997. Being the proud parents of a toddler, we naturally visited the new Children’s Center on the second floor. I noticed the glassed-in space under the stairs immediately. “Good place to put a railroad,” I thought. It took me seventeen years to turn that idle notion into reality, but here it is.
This week I’m recuperating from the Syracuse Train Fair, which is the biggest show in our end of New York State. Our club always participates in a large, modular N scale layout. For the past four years, we’ve built T-Trak layouts with two other clubs. The intensity of this event serves to reminds me of everything I love, and hate, about modular railroading.
Ahh, train show season is upon us! I’ll be at the Syracuse Train Fair this weekend, helping out with the T-Trak layout. Hope to see you there!
