Never Get Between a Man And His Trains

January 25, 2010 at 2:00pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I don’t know what it is about trains that evokes so much passion from some people. Whatever it is has been in plentiful supply lately in Lincoln because it seems like the Lincoln Area Model Railroad Club and Museum is in the news every other week. This time the topic is their effort to move a depot, caboose, and train signal from Innovation Campus to the Lancaster Event Center grounds. There they would become part of the club’s proposed model railroad museum.

Speaking of the museum, I’ll be very impressed if the club manages to raise the $500,000 they need. That’s a lot of money for any group of hobbyists to raise. I hope they get there. You can bet my son Robert will spend many hours at the museum once it’s finished. I hope they sell annual memberships.

Hey Mr. Wilson - if you didn’t take him before, I’d highly recommend the train show on February 20 and 21. I took my little guy (about the same age as Robbie) last year, with grandpa (who has been a model RR’er all his life), and my son still talks about it all the time. I asked him this morning if he wants to go again this year, and he’s ready to go “tonight.”

We’re definitely planning on going this year. I’m not going to tell him in advance, though. If I were to tell him about it now, he’d go sit in the car and be ready to leave!
