On the Road with Tom and Gloria travel blog

Jim in "the pit"


In Jim's earlier years he had lots of model trains in his basement. Tom's dad was into model trains too and from what I was told he also had quite a setup in their basement. Jim struck up a conversation with a couple of guys from the Scottsdale Model Railroad Club and they invited him to step into "the pit" and run the trains. Boy was he delighted. This is a new building that houses an enormous collection of model trains. As you can see from the photos, much of the exhibit is still under construction.

We ended up staying at the park for a couple of hours and then lunched at The Village Tavern. On the way home we stopped at the library but didn't have proper documentation with us to qualify for a card. I'll go back over the weekend. I did manage to buy 2 books from the friends of the library book sale.
