    The World's Greatest Hobby (model railroading, of course) is scheduled to be featured on NBC's Today's Show Thursday, June 13.

    Actor Michael Gross will be there to talk about model railroading and to show the Madison Central layout.

    DAMN I didn't get home last night until 11:15 and then *TOTALLY* forgot to tape it. Ugh.

    Just saw the program at 9:45 Mountain time, shame that the segment was so short, but it was informative for the novice.Also a shame that I have never gone to Santa Fe to ride on the Santa Fe short line to Lamy, NM I only live about 55 miles from there.

    The lay out that they used looked real good for a simple starter set up.

    There was enough on display, that if time had been given, a comprehensive promotion of the hobby could have been done. The producers of the show, put it off to the last, and slotted minimum time, so none of the "visuals" could be explained. Still, it was national TV exposure to the hobby.

    On a related topic, "Tracks Ahead" is on Saturdays on our PBS "affiliate". Not "great", but nevertheless an interesting show - they'll usually do one story on prototypes and one story on model railroads. Might wanna check our your local PBS schedule.
