The Miracle Strip Model RR Club of Shalimar, FL held it's Open House this past Saturday (11-13). They have a nice two-level layout: the HO scale Gulf Coast & Western RR. Gauge regulars Shaygetz and B28_82 are members of this club. First picture: Bob (Shaygetz) brought his chapel car. He says that if he runs the shay at a scale 12 mph, it takes 57 minutes to travel the entire length of the layout. 2nd picture: The grade crossing at Douglasville has flashers and automatic train detection. 3rd picture: Thomas made frequent appearances to the delight of the younger railfans.
