Scenes from Past Train Shows

The Setup

A lot of energy is expended when setting up a train show. The whole area was an indoor soccer field at noon. Green from end to end. Then the Club crew got busy marking the floor to show where all the layouts go and Sports Center crew set up all the tables. Before long vendors and layout groups started to arrive and transformed the space into a train show.
