O.c. Model Railroad Sees More Vandalism – Los Angeles Times

Friday, June 27th, 2014:

After the thefts in early March, the hobbyists felt derailed until donations began to roll in. The Costa Mesa police and firefighter associations each donated $500. Goat Hill Tavern, a popular watering hole in town, donated $1,000, and the donation boxes at the railroad filled up. "It's heartwarming, frankly, to see the response from the community," Castignetti said at the time. "It's been overwhelming, and we're just so gobsmacked over this." But moods soured after the vandalism attack that left picnic tables damaged.

The Polar Express Is Real!

Thursday, June 26th, 2014:

Polar Express - Ann Arbor Family Travel | Examiner.com The Polar Express as a movie added a lot of plot complications to pad out the story into a feature length film, but it's still very entertaining and not unfaithful to the original story. The book is more focused and deservedly a classic for its evocation of the holidays, the nature of gifting, and a belief in larger things despite evidence to the contrary. Railroads and the Christmas season have had a long tradition in both story and real life connections long before the Polar Express arrived. Canadian Pacific's holiday train […] Read More →

With Video: Working On The Railroad: Northern Ironhorse Railroad Society Has Been In Existence Here Since 1985 | Bemidji Pioneer

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014:

The city of Bemidji did a lot of cosmetic repairs to the building as the Beltrami County Historical Society took over the building, which now rents the basement to the club. The organization used to have a module design for its model railroad which allowed for it to be disassembled, however, "We have kind of, eliminated the portable aspect of it because it's all one piece now," Muller said. Having a permanent model railroad has allowed the group to be able to make changes and expand unlike before, "Because having it in separate pieces, it was just prone to having […] Read More →

“the Polar Express” – Salon.com

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014:

Polar Express - Ann Arbor Family Travel | Examiner.com When they bring him a mug of steaming hot cocoa, he tosses away his crutches and, yes, walks again. OK, there are no crutches, but there is a surly-friendly train conductor (again, the voice of Hanks), an elusive hobo who threatens to cook up the true meaning of Christmas over a Sterno can (Tom Hanks again), and Santa Claus himself (again, you guessed it, Hanks), who is a refreshingly benign figure after all these Village of the Damned sprouts. Because Van Allsburgs book is so slim and direct, it serves as […] Read More →

Model Railroad N Scale Train Set | Retire For The Fun Of It

Friday, June 20th, 2014:

Last night I was surfing around on the world wide web and discovered this: We purchased a home for retirement that fits our empty nester life style, which only allowed room for an N Scale size train set.

After learning about the techniques of remodeling a train layout, Lee changed the scenes to reflect our travels through the Moab, Utah area. The new mountain has red rock spires with trees, rock climbers and campers, surrounded by city life in miniature. […] Read More →
