KidFest event in Concord, CA

Visitors to KidFest Memorial Day weekend in Concord check out the Roving Garden Railroad. Thousands of people, many of them very young train enthusiasts, walked around the layout asking questions and trying to make the train move with fingers. We definitely need stanchions or cones with ropes. The trains ran well and the plants looked happy, too. We got a nice little write-up and photo posted on an online Concord news blog at

Our next event is July 5 and 6 at the NMRA Convention where we'll be running trains outdoors in front of the Convention Center. How's that for a California intro to model railroads? We'd love to have you bring a battery operated train or live steam train to run on the Roving Garden Railway. We need manpower/tabling, too, to schmooze with show goers.
