Today we had a great train show!! Tons of folks came to see the country’s largest model railroad. We had kids playing with the Sopranos layout using club engines and cars that we got from Lionel. These LionChief engines are truly tough engines as kids put them through their paces.

We now use three LionChief engines on the layout, one at the refinery and two at the coal tipple. At the coal tipple our guest can unload Lionel, Atlas and MTH coal hoppers. Total blast to watch the children operate the accessories from MTH, Menards, Lionel and our custom hand-built items.

Today’s raffle was / is a Lionel LionChief Ready to Run End of the Line Set. In addition, we gave a way a Lionel Pennsylvania coach car, item 6-35274 to a lucky guest.

The Sopranos layout was super busy due to the fact last weekend we took that layout to SopranosCon and 10,000 people had the opportunity to see the actual Bobby B. Garage layout.

 The scavenger hunt was a big hit and one young lady found over 70% of the items. So, she got some free food from Chef Vincent.

Here are some pictures of the day.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

Special thanks to Lionel
