Trains, Trains, Trains!
The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History, Kennesaw, GA, held it's annual Trains, Trains, Trains! event on January 25, 2014 and the North Atlanta Rail Barons were there in force.
Our members assumed responsibility for delivering and installing the Piedmont Division's Kids Layout in O-scale, and then supervising the layout for the day-long event. Walt Liles, I.D. Jackson, Bob Wood, joined by several members of North Georgia Modu-Rail, set up and tested the layout on Friday evening prior to the show. Howard Goodwin and Mark Thomann joined in on show day to supervise the activity for most of the day.
We also displayed the NARB "Model Railroad Magic" project that we had recently completed in December, 2013.
More than 2400 visitors to the museum were able to view all of the museum's displays, plus these three display in which members of the North Atlanta Rail Barons were participating.
