|I donned my ACW Generals uniform to present my talk at Leesyylvania State Park|
It was a busy week for sharing the word of Civil War era model railroading.
It started last week when my son and his family were in town for the holidays and a conference. On two evenings we ran trains for the entertainment of my granddaughter, Ruka, and her parents. She seemed to be fascinated with the trains despite just turning one year old on Monday.
The visitors continued on Friday when Jack Brown, his wife and their friend John Carroll visited the Aquia Line as part of a weekend trip to the Washington, DC area. It was Jack and John's second visit but the first for his wife. We had a nice visit.
On Saturday morning I presented a talk on Railroads of the Civil War to a group of 15 people at the Leesylvania State Park visitor center. The visitor center has a nice museum with lots of information about the history of the land that comprises the park. It was a pleasant surprise as I did not know that there was a museum there.
Thanks to Bill Mosteller and John Steitz who ran the trains during the open house.
Alicia made cookies, which appeared to be a bit hit as none were left at the end of the day. Bill also brought some cookies.
