National Train Show Part 2

Not only did we receive 2nd place at the National Train Show, we made the Indianapolis Star on 7/11.   (In all fairness, I do admit that those are some of my newest engines)… Great publicity for the club.  Thanks to David Palmeter and Bill Duncan for the catch in their morning paper, while the rest of us were trying to de-stress from the long week.
