McCook's Landing in Charlottesville

I hauled my portion of McCook's Landing to Charlottesville, VA for a layout open house.

We set up the layout in Gerry and Gabriela's home for  a one day open house for the NMRA James River Division. About 22 people stopped by to see the layout and sample some of the treats that Gabriela prepared. Most visitors had a chance to run the layout informally. We did not have official operation sessions.

Ken Monetro, Phillip Taylor and Rick Lull from the JRD NMRA helped during the event with greeter, photo and take down duties.   All in all it was a fun day.
