The Tex-N Modular Railroad Club participated in the second annual Dallas Public Library “Trains & Stories” event on Wednesday, June 27, 2018. The Club displayed a 14’ by 17’ model railroad with four loops of trains operating continuously. The railroad was fully decorated with grass, trees, creeks, bridges, buildings, autos, trucks, people, and of course, trains! All trains were modeled after real railroads with steam and diesel locomotives, freight cars, passenger cars, cabooses, and Thomas and Henry from the “Thomas The Tank Engine” books and TV show.
This “Trains & Stories” event drew over 300 attendees from the surrounding community. Children especially loved our trains and the story time led by the librarian. Tex-N will be back in the summer of 2020 for the next Trains & Stories Event!
