  • Internal electrics were completed with temporary light fittings in place
  • Great mock up lettering decals were tested

On the miniature railway front, both our Sweet Creek steam locomotive and our miniature Whitcomb “diesel” saw service as hundreds of riders enjoyed a ride on Saturday.  Sunday also saw the Romulus steam loco pressed into service to provide training for prospective new engineers.
