It was the third year for the National Train Day event at the LaPlata.
Lobby all ready for the big day.
We had a good crowd (about 60) and a large group of riders (25). The train was a little late but there was plenty to entertain them.
There was the APRHF display and a Operation Lifesaver display. The APRHF Display was on the luggage cart in the first photo.
This was the Operation Lifesaver Display
We also had some fresh baked Amish Donuts and a local family brought their hot dog cart down for lunch.
Hot Dogs anyone???
The NEMO model railroad club had their layout open and the trains were running great.
A UP Turbine is handling a cattle car train as it makes its way across the upper deck. A very nice looking model owned by a NEMO MRA Member.
Freight traffic was also quite frequent to provide for a good distraction when needed.
Rob Meyer was also on hand with his ATCS display showing the people how to read it and where the trains where. He had quite a crowd also. Everyone really enjoyed following the line on the screen until the trains went by. If you happen to be in the model train room when a train went by. They had a camera set-up with a TV so you didn’t miss a thing. I Bob Cox would like to thank everyone who came to the event and helped make the day successful.
There was also a Chuggington fun area with a DVD playing. Some kids and Grandpa were enjoying the shows later in the morning.
