Rochester Area S-Gaugers at National Museum of Play Trains Weekend
National Museum of Play Trains Weekend Exhibit
The Rochester Area S-Gaugers were invited to show our modular layout at the National Museum of Play's annual Trains Weekend exhibit that was held on October 16th and 17th, 2010. For this exhibit we set up the modular layout in its ten foot by twenty foot configuration.
There was a good turn out for the set up and operation at this exhibit. George Cole, Dave Daniel, Roger Delthony, and Chuck Smith were on hand for this show. Bill Johnson assisted with the set-up and tear down of the modular layout. All of the photos on this page were taken by Bill Johnson.

The National Museum of Play staff had the Rochester Area S-Gaugers set up their layout in the atrium area of the museum. The modular layout was set up near a stairway to an upper level of the museum. The location afforded a unique opportunity to get the top down shots that appear on this page.
Roger Delthony reported that there were many visitors to the modular layout at this exhibit.
