David & Sharon O’Haver – Open House Recap 2019

We had great weather for an open house a few weeks ago! David and Sharon’s new garden layout reflects the hard work they poured into this wonderful creation. It was exciting to see all the garden colors and the long bridge over the pond! David said a bridge was one of his top requirements when he started planning the layout. In addition to the garden layout, they setup a loop of track in the grass to run another train. All in all, everyone had a great time outdoors with trains and sunshine! Enjoy the photos and thank you David and Sharon for a great open house!

Upland Strawberry Festival Recap

Brandon Carney’s Amtrak E8Amtrak 411 zooms by the circus in Upland, IN.

The club had a fantastic time as always in Upland, IN at the 2019 Blooms and Barries Festival. Bill Duncan noted that 14 different trains ran throughout the day. As always there were many that enjoyed the display. I’m sure the whole group is already looking forward to next year’s festival for all the fun of running trains! Well, and fresh strawberries too. Okay, a few of us might mostly look forward to that part… myself included.

The next modular setup is on the schedule for September 21, at the Castleton Christian Church Palooza. Till then enjoy some of these photos from Upland.

Double the Trains with two Open Houses this Saturday!

Rex & Nancy Bowman’s Garden Layout.

Just a quick and friendly reminder that there are two open houses this weekend!

This Saturday, June 22, we have the wonderful opportunity to enjoy Rex Bowman and Bud Hunter’s layouts from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. As Bud Hunter put it, ‘we are hopping the weather is partly cloudy and NO RAIN!’ As always, you are welcome to invite a guest(s) to accompany you to our Open Houses.

See you then!
