Aww…Monday – Model Railroading
Recently there was a model train show at the local fairgrounds. All of the scenery for the display above is Lego’s! It was very impressive.
I have a soft spot for trains because my dad worked for the Frisco Railroad for 42 years. One Christmas he bought me a Lionel set to play with around the Christmas tree. The problem was that I could hang out at the depot and ride the real trains, so why would I bother with a toy? Big mistake. I like hanging out at the train show and getting a few photos of the lay-outs and the operators.
This lay-out caught my eye because of the train. It is a model of the Frisco “Texas Special”. The Texas Specail was a joint effort between the MK&T and the Frisco to provide service from St. Louis to San Antonio. I own some paper place mats from the dining car of the Texas Special.
One of the coolest displays was this lay-out in a trailer. You just hook it up and take it to any show in the country.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
This week a a fee choice week at 4M. I thought I would stay with the railroad and develop a playlist based on train music.
