More Fun in Columbus, Ohio

Posted on May 28th, 2012, by Michael Rountree

I have also posted my story of how I found NSNX 2011 in various places at the show – the module owners were happy to let me pose the car, especially since many of them were familiar with Nscale.net. JB and I had some fun posing that boxcar in various other places too, not just on the club layouts. The fairgrounds in Hilliard also features a historical town setting, which includes an old depot and a caboose.
