New Mexico Railrunners

Arriving Albuquerque, Monday night just at dusk, we settled in to rest. Whew. Long trip of 1242 miles. Yesterday, we rested, replenished supplies at Trader Joes and whole foods, then I went to a movie and visited a model railroad club.

The New Mexico Railrunners operates their little N scale (same as mine) trains in an older empty storefront in a light industrial section of town near the tracks. Club name comes from the commuter train which runs from Santa Fe to Albuquerque. 2 of the members has visited my layout during the national convention back on summer of 2011.

The layout itself is assembled from sections or modules they can take these portable sections to exhibit in other locations.

Each module is unique in design. The module above has a crop dusting plane.

This module above has Peter Pan in the forest. Cute.

Finally here is a brief movie I shot with my iPhone. Set in corner by the lumber mill.

The guys were most accommodating. Real fun.
