Model Railroad Volunteers and Exhibit

November 5, 2006

I certainly am not a model railroad expert. But a fan of model railroading and a fascination for the hobby, I do have. The museum is fortunate to have several active volunteers that inspire and serve the museum’s model railroad exhibit. They have a variety of skills and a varied amount of skill levels. But what they all have is an enthusiasm that is contagious.

The latest update to the model railroad web page includes some photos of our troops busy creating new benchwork. These volunteers come together on Thursday nights and if you happen to be in the area and would like to stop by, you would be most welcome.

The process of building a new layout from scratch requires patience, determination and energy. Not to mention a few members that have an understanding of how all this comes together. Take a look at what these dedicated folks are doing.

Welcome to the museum’s blog.

October 23, 2006

Welcome to our first attempt at a blog. We will use this to offer news updates about museum activities and seek your comments about various museum exhibits, projects and programs. Thanks to museum volunteer, locomotive engineer and website designer, Vinny, we have entered in to a more interactive part of the web.

Allow me a little room for mistakes and climbing the learning curve of administrating a blog and I think that this will be a fine addition to our website.

Real content will be along soon.
