Thomas the Train Show at OERM

(Orange Empire Railroad Museum)

This was a special year indeed. After attending the OERM's swap meet this summer, The Poway Station was invited to come and setup at OERM's Thomas the Train event. This is no ordinary train event, we are talking up to 10,000 people for a weekend.

A group of members went down on Friday morning very early and setup Bob Danzl's O gauge layout in OERM's car barn. It didn't take long before huge crowds of kids and adults assaulted the layout, sometimes literally.

Event went for 3 days and the crew pulled up stakes and took down the layout late Sunday. It was a fun time and very very busy.

 

Below are some pictures taking at the event.
