Mauldin CofC Trains, Trains & More Trains 2017

The Mauldin Chamber of Commerce held their annual Trains, Trains & More Trains event on Sept 8th, 9th, 10th, 15th and 16th, at the Chamber of Commerce building. The show was very well attended (4,700 visitors?). The first weekend we ran the traditional loop, then during the week replaced one end with John's 2 end loops, and ran this configuration for the 2nd weekend. This provided walk-in access to the pit area with a trade-off in reduced loops (4 down to 2).

Clinton, SC Rhythm on the Rails 2017

The 2017 Clinton Rhythm on the Rails street festival was a success, and the Piedmont N Southern once again appreciated being a part of it. We set up our standard loop with side yard on Friday, May 19 and ran Friday night and all day Saturday, with teardown and loadup on Saturday evening, May 20. We had a steady trickle of visitors, all seemed to enjoy the show, and the air conditioning. We ran lots of trains, and found and fixed a few wiring and track issues.

2016 Rhythm on the Rails in Clinton, SC

We were invited to participate in Clinton, SC's festival called Rhythm On The Rails. This two-day event was May 20 and 21. We set up our basic loop with side yard and turntable module. The show attendance was moderate, but everyone seemed to enjoy the layout.  The layout ran well, with no major issues encountered. the highlight of the event was the very interesting color scheme of the space we were using (see the photos.....)
