“See It, Hold It, Run It” and Blue Comet Program News
May 23, 2012 - See It, Hold It, Run It — our program aimed at bringing new participants of all ages into our hobby — marked a successful two-day appearance last weekend at the Angels Gate Hi-Railers Model Railroad Club open house in San Pedro, CA. Attendance was strong and many visitors took the throttle on the club’s expansive layout. A lucky brother and sister, Trajan and Jacuie DuBois of Burbank, won the raffle for an M.T.H. RailKing O Gauge Union Pacific steam freight train set.
