I snapped these photos today with my cell phone (excuse the quality) today at a layout I did during a model railroad open house at the Sprenkle House Ministry Center in York, Pa. I ran a couple of N scale trains around on the outside of the layout and introduced the visitors to the hobby of miniature wargaming while they came to look at our train group’s (Stillmeadow Crossing Modular Trains) massive O scale modular setup.
The Sprenkle House is part of the campus of Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene. The ministry center is built around a 19th century farmhouse which was raided by the 17th Virginia Cavalry during the Gettysburg Campaign back in 1863.
Trains pass through the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, while hundreds of reenactors perform a sham battle for the crowds.
The outside loop is Bachmann EZ Track; a Christmas gift from my wife. The inner loop and the spur are Kato Unitrack.
Union reinforcements clog the roadways as they move toward the tiny Civil War reenactment taking place on a nearby farm.
The old Sach’s Covered Bridge got a fresh coat of paint before the reenactment.
This Bicentennial train was a gift from my grandparents back in 1976. My Grandpa Williams worked for the New York Central as a bridge builder.
The Stillmeadow Crossing Modular Train Group has a very large modular layout which is very popular. The group was formed on 2011.
