National Capitol Trackers Train Display
By: Nicole Chappell
All Aboard! On April 9th, the National Capitol Trackers “O-Gauge Train Club” transformed our Scott Community Center into an interactive train display. The trains included electric, and diesel engines from the early 20th century to modern day chugging down the track. Setup began at 8:00 am and was completed by 10:00 am with the exception of two modules. Modules that contain two train tracks and are all built to the same specification so that they readily interconnect. The residents were all excited about how lovely and well organized the train display appeared. Some even expressed to the club members their childhood memories of collecting trains. It was also exciting to learn about the history of each train and the members who built them. Special thanks to National Capitol Trackers “O- Gauge Train Club” for making this a day to remember.
