Christmas in the Park 2006

Poway Station sets up each year in the old Poway Park for the anual Christmas in the Park event. Bob Danzl's O gauge layout was setup by members in the early afternoon. The park was light up lights, songs of Christmas were being song and the smell of lots of baked goods was in the air.

The trolley came out and was given rides to people and before long the live steamer 0-4-0 came out to the thrills of all. We got to setup right next to the track so we got the steam, smoke and all the sounds of the real thing while running our models. Ahhhh heaven on earth! Well for us steam lovers anyway haha.

The club members passed out candy canes to all the kids while they drooled over the Polar Express and the Christmas Train being run. Thanks to Bob Danzl and Jim Phelan for providing all the equipment.
