The Team set up the layout on 8 December 2015 and ran trains on Wednesday 9 December. We had 11 Modules plus the Geezer Gate from the Md trailer. We used four foot corners with all 072 curves and had the entire layout set for a 31.5” rail height. We decorated with a variety of toys and buildings with winter and Christmas featured on most of the modules. We completed the layout early Wednesday morning and started running trains by 0830. The first class of students arrived at 0900.
The audience included children from the ages of 3 thru 8 plus teachers and school staff. Between 0900 and 1445 we had 832 students visit the layout. We started removing the layout 3 PM and were gone by 4:30.
The school Principal and the CEO of Eagle Academy PCS attended and were very pleased with how the show went. We have been asked to plan a larger layout for next November. It would be a two day show. We have also been asked to try and provide a show at their second campus which has 129 students. If we can arrange it, that show will be in January or February.
Check the website for photos and a video of the show.
