Sn2 Crew: 2008 Dayton NMRA Show

An overall view of the setup by the Sn2 Crew..

Frank Knight and Lee Rainey (The Sn2 Crew) displayed their Sn2 Free-mo modules at the 2008 Dayton Train Show (Nov 1-2). Lee returned to the town he once called home, some 20 years or so earlier. He made the return to support his fellow Mini-Bunch friends in that wonderful town. Lee traveled some 400 miles or so, but Frank came all the way from Maine, traveling 900 miles each way (Sn2 modelers have a passion!)

This was the first multi-owner linear (loop to loop) setup of Sn2 Free-mo, and probably the first Free-mo setup in Southwest Ohio. The setup was monument, but just the start of the Crew hopes to achieve in mass in the future…
