Thompson’s Old Fashioned Train Show

Byron and I along with family friend Jacob attended the 2nd Thompson’s Old Fashioned Train show in Clemmons today. Lots of O and S. Some HO and N layouts. Then there was my Z scale one. Although massively incomplete, it was well received. Finally got a cheap old N scale boxcar to compare to one in Z and then people really appreciated the size more. Alright, enough talking, time for pictures:

Jacob working the control. Control is Arduino powered. The cheap powerpack is for the AC to the switch machines.
