    The Torrington Area Model Railroaders held a free train show at the Town Hall yesterday. There were no vendors, but they had both their HO and N scale modulars layouts set-up.
    Here's one with the Torrington Station as it looked at the turn of the last century. The platform was actually a block long.

    There was a neat little cross section of a pond on this one.
    If you look close you can see an alligator on the bottom

    Honey...Do you remember where I put the truck last night?

    They had a table where kids of all ages could put together frieght cars. Then they would hook them to a train and run them around a layout. I see a lot of future Gaugers in here.

    Would love to see more of the Nscale layout if you have them. Looks like the youngsters were having a great time and thats the best anyone running a show could ask for.

    Hi 88,

    Sorry I missed that, see a few familiar faces in the pictures. Would like to have seen that station up real close, great work. Good to see everyone had a good time, see Mellissa and the Sweeney modules busy again. I find that shows without vendors seem real long, other than talking to visitors and friends there is nothing to do but run trains for six hours.

    Way to go Torrington Area Model Club: thumb:
