After many months of delays, the Children’s Playroom G scale layout is finally complete.

See the group photo here.
A full chronicling of the project including the plexiglass platform installation by Desert Star Glass Interiors is the subject of May’s featured model railroad.
Until next month,
ALL ABOARD !!
