A little bit about this layout

This show is our big event for December each year. It gives us a chance to get together for the holiday season to decorate a layout and run trains for the holiday crowds, in addition, we also get to do a bit of shopping.

When you pull a great team together to set up a Winter Wonderland and Thomas and Percy at the North Pole you wish for the very best talent and fun times together. That is what SJGRS did at the Ocean City Train Show.

Bare risers began to develop into a snowy layout with a great bridge, mountain, tunnels and five trains running throughout the two days.

Bob and Patti Moffit coordinated the event and did a wonderful job. Patti set up the North Pole and children ran Thomas and Percy through the small village beaming with lights highlighted with a singing Christmas tree that fascinated the little ones. 495 certificates and candy canes were given out to the children. We received many good comments from parents.

Members who worked this event were getting on track by doing track, electrical, landscaping, crowd control and running trains.

The entire event from setup on Friday, starting at 1 pm, through Sunday breakdown, at 4 pm, was memorable to all of us. We all learned at least one thing new while enjoying the work and the excitement in the eyes of the visitors.
